“The Guild takes solace in the fact that Mrs Njiowhor served humanity with diligence in her sojourn here on Earth.
“We extend our condolences to her husband and children as well as the management and staff of The Tide newspaper and the people and government of Rivers State.
“May her soul rest in the bosom of the Lord
