"I feel terribly sad with the passing away of this young man, Yako who was joined to his heartthrob about a month ago . I was a guest at the wedding, we danced and celebrated this beautiful union just to be told of his demise today.
"This is sad and I am short of words to console the family, particularly the young widow. Please, accept my sincerest condolences and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time."

In another Facebook post, he added:

"Find it difficult to swallow these sad developments....can this be true, my dear son? So, your wedding on the 29th of December 2022 was a valedictory ceremony? Hmmmmmm.....what is this life then? GOOD NIGHT."

Recall that Dalung also lost his son Nehemiah Dalung aged 33.

He wrote:

“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.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians on social media commiserated with him on the loss.

In another report Dalung, had recently hit out at the chieftain of the ruling All Progress Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode.

This is coming after the latter made a social media post on Tuesday, October 4, condemning the continuous comparison of Peter Obi of the Labour Party presidential candidate and his principal, Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC.

In his post, Fani-Kayode stated that Obi's comparison with his principal is a "big insult and frankly reflects nothing other than the ignorance of those making the comparison."
