Orduen Takema, the Senior Special Assistant to Benue State Governor on Revenue and Taxation, has died.
Takema reportedly slumped and died on Monday night, February 8, few hours after he buried his late cousin, Hemen Nyikwagh at Tse Takema in Gboko.
The deceased's cousin, Smith Akôm Takema posted a photo they took at the burial yesterday.
"Earlier today I shared a piece of meat with you when we buried Hemen Nyikwagh our beloved cousin. I didn't know this was a departing moment. God!!!! Orduen Takema my man rest on" he wrote.
