”Rest in Peace Dr Val
COVID19 took you from us but it can’t erase your memories.

You were fit as a fiddle.

Rest on brother. Rest on.”

”A young medical doctor
@ehival has died from Covid19. This is very sad and heartbreaking.

I just checked his page again now.
He even used RIP Jimoh and #EndSARS as profile name.

He believed in Nigeria.
He wanted a better country.
Today he is gone.

May God comfort his family.”

”So, we lost a friend to COVID-19, a doctor who’s humble to the core. He attended to the wounded people at the Lekki protest few weeks ago. He was a cheerful and an easy going friend. We were even praying for his safety not knowing this would happen. Please pray for him”
