“Mallam Muhammed inspired the youths with his noble words and helped to bring about the reduction of thuggery in the area. He awakened the conscience of his fellow elders and helped to make thuggery appear unacceptable.
“The deceased is loved in every part of Kogi State and played a very active role in Kogi’s fight for quality governance. He is seen by other statesmen as the voice and conscience of the Kogites.

He has also been the political father of many young and upcoming politicians in the state, giving them advice and whipping them into line when they go astray.
