Taraba State Entertainment Industry says it regretted the death of Mr. Samuel Awar, a comedian.
Awar, popularly known as BIG SHARK, died in the early hours of Thursday while lodging in an hotel in Jalingo, the state capital. Lamenting the death, the state Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Mr. Atosuma, James Gani, said it created a big vacuum in the state entertainment industry that would be difficult to fill. Sunday Vanguard gathered that the comedian, on Wednesday, went out with some young men who helped him to place posters around Jalingo preparatory to Taraba Peace Concert billed to hold on December 17 after which he returned to his hotel room. He was not seen the next day until his aides looked for him and found him dead in the hotel room. Taraba State police public relations officer, Mr. David Misal, confirmed to Sunday Vanguard the death of the comedian. He revealed that two girls were detained for questioning over the incident and that they were still with the police as of the time of the report.
