The Executive and entire members of FALCON CLUB ASABA condole with the Asaba community as they observe the 50th Memorial Anniversary of the Asaba Massacre which occurred during the Nigerian Civil War on 7th October, 1967.
Fifty years on, the memories of our Massacre loved ones are too beautiful to be forgotten.Just as the prophet Jeremiah was quoted as saying in Mathew 2 vs. 18 “A sound is heard in Ramah, the sound of bitter weeping, Rachael is crying for her children;she refuses to be comforted for they are dead.”
The sound of bitter weeping was heard all over Asaba and beyond on that fateful day.Indeed Asaba was weeping for her children! We are however consoled by the fact that,in all things we should continue to give God the glory.
We pray that Almighty God will grant them eternal rest in his bosom while granting the Asaba community the fortitude to bear the losses.
