He said he was shocked to receive news of Ali’s sudden death just two days ago. He also extended his condolences to the families of all the brave officers and soldiers who died.

In Afegbua’s words: “I spoke with him [Lt. Col. Hassan Ali] last week, he was contemplating that in 7 years he would retire from the army and face life outside the army, that he has had his own time. Only for me to wake up two days back and they sent a message to me that Ali was dead. It is quite painful”
