  20. I just pray it’s actually the tooth that killed him. Poor widow that’s even pregnant. God will see her through

  21. Its possible the pains from the removal could have lead to something internal, I could remember the day my husband want to remove his teeth too at ISOLO general hospital after testing the teeth, the dentists brought pier to remover the teeth without given any injection to weaken the area.

  22. So for the loss. Never knew that tooth aches could kill . I think there’s more to this than meet the eyes.

  23. so tooth complications can kill like this oh lord…. I pray you grant the wife a heart to contain the loss of her husband and may his gentle soul rest in peace..

  24. Rest in peace. When its ones time to go there is no stopping and even the slmple illness can be the end . how many tooth aches do we have daily but his brought about complications that kept sending him in and out of hospital.

  25. See the kind judge, leaving his pregnant wife alone In this cruel world. Too bad, rest in peace man.

  26. Lawyers and judges, their job are not ordinary. You don’t know who you are dealing with. Just ordinary teath removal procedure leads to his death, leaving behind his pregnant wife.
    May his soul rest in peace

  27. It’s hard to think that complications resulting tooth removal procedures could lead to the death of a Judge as young as 32 years. The story is really disheartening.

  28. Gone so soon at a very young age. Death has no friend at all. Like they say something must kill a man. Can’t even hearing tooth problem leading to death in my life and this is the first time I’m hearing this. Is not a matter that should be overlooked, the cause of the death should be examined to determine what actually killed him for future to prevent such complications. My condolence to the family and young wife.

  29. Quite painful, I goes through it once and I never wish that pain for my enemy. But I don’t believe it can lead to death. May his family has the fortitude to bear the loss. R. I. P. Mohammed.

  30. I doubt it’s just complications from the tooth ache that killed him. Something else must have being wrong with the judge that they did not detect in the hospital

  31. Such a tragic loss.. May he rest in peace.. If its after a tooth removal procedure, there’s a high chance it was induced by infection

  32. Nawa oo. Just because they did not increase salary. Is not by force to increase salary if your not satisfied look for another place to work na.

  33. may his soul rest in peace. I never knew tooth extraction could be complicated to the extent of death at all.

  34. What a pity, may is soul rest in peace… And I pray his wife give birth safely when it is time.. All she have to do now is to take heart

  35. Obviously something went wrong in the tooth removal procedure resulting to the complications. May his soul rest in peace and may God protect and provide for his pregnant wife.

  36. Ok first of all I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone die out of tooth removal I’m sure the person that removes the teeth is a dentist so how come he died in the hospital whilst it’s a dentist that removes your teeth and what possible complication could occur while removing someone’s teeth just odd to be honest

  37. Maybe its another illness that was not discovered..
    Have never heard someone died of tooth removal.
    A judge at 32..
    May God comfort his pregnant wife.

  38. This Tooth removal isn’t just ordinary if you’d ask me because it happens to people and they never doubt succeeding

  39. Only God knows the root cause of your death.May the lord grant you eternal rest
    This is a lesson to each and everyone of us,we don’t know the last work we will utter neither the last step we will take…let us do good and embrace good thibgs.

  40. Oh Jesus…so he won’t see his baby…this is so sad..may God console his family and grant him eternal rest.

  41. All these sections used to judge cases hmmmm a language only barristers understand as for the deceased may his soul rest in peace

  42. Quite painful,may his soul rest in peace and may God give his wife and family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss

  43. What kind of life is this such a promising young man how will the family take this?, my dear just take and be strong for your unborn child.

  44. What does the judges death has to do with a case he once handle? Abeg let’s console the family. He’s gone he’s gone

  45. His death is not because he had tooth problem.ha must have had other medical issues that has been disturbing him.i so pitied his pregnant wife but i know almighty God will take care of her and the unborn child.so sad!

  46. What a big loss, but if our hospitals are well equipped I doubt if ordinary teeth removal should be repeated. Doctors should share in this one

  47. Oh God save us oooo how is the wife going to take this new and the newly born baby would grow without a father.

  48. What a tragic death! A very young judge and all he had is a pregnant wife. I pray that God will comfort and console his family because this is a huge loss.

  49. May the judge gentle soul rest in perfect peace. And for brother Husseini she try to always think twice and control his anger before taking action.

  50. Sad! But tooth removal doesn’t kill, I wonder how the pregnant wife will cope with this. Rest in peace judge

  51. What manner of complications for tooth ache. Probably black magic was used on him. Well, my condolence to the family.

  52. What a sad tragic end. I don’t think he died from the tooth extraction procedure. There was an underlying illness.

  53. At 32years he was all ready a judge, how did he Do it. that so great achievement. But he gone now. Sorry to the judiciary and my thought is withnthe family
