So Nehemiah didn’t make it. Until press time, details of the ailment which eventually took the live of Nehemiah Dalung was still sketchy, but from pictures and video posted by his family, showed he was in a critical situation.
His father, Solomon Dalung, a lawyer and former Nigeria’s Sports Minister asked on Sunday for prayers for his son who ” was critically sick on admission” but less than 24 hours later, he was dead.
Dalung posted to announce the demise on Monday morning.
“Although Nehemiah’s life ended before we were ready, the time Nehemiah spent in our lives was memorable. Nehemiah Dalung was 33 years old. He was the son of former Sports & Youth Minister, Solomon Dalung.
There are no words to express the deep pain and sorrow of losing one’s son at his prime age, but we take consolation in God who gives and takes.
May his soul rest in peace,” he said.
And we say a big Amen!
