Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday paid a condolence visit to the family of Precious Owolabi, the National Youth Service Corps member serving with Channels Television, who was killed during a clash between the Nigeria Police Force and members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shi'ite.

Osinbajo, in the company of Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, visited the home of Owolabi in Zaria, the state capital.

Osinbajo revealed this via his official Twitter handle. He said: "Nothing will ever compare with the pain of losing a child.  This evening, I visited the family of Precious Owolabi and as a nation, we grieve the loss of this bright young man. May the Almighty God comfort the family and loved one."


Also writing about two hours ago on Instagram, the Vice-President shared photos and wrote; ‘’We bless the name of the Lord for the life of Precious Owolabi. We cannot even purport to imagine the enormity of this loss to the family, but we are confident the almighty God will comfort the family and bring back joy and peace to all members of the family.’’

Owolabi and a senior police officer were killed by stray bullets during a clash between police and Shi'ite in Abuja on Monday, July 22, 2019.
