The Berom Educational and Cultural Organization (BECO) received the news of the sudden death of our dear father and leader, Da Nelson Andak Bakfur, the Mishkaham Mwaghavul, with utmost shock, pain and sadness. This remains one painful death we may not easily come to terms with in the very near future. This is because we, as mortals, are limited in things of this nature. It is only the creator who knows the end from the beginning and we cannot question His will at all. We totally submit to his will.

2 There is no doubt the death of the monarch has created a major vacuum, not only in his domain, but at the state and national levels, where his contributions were very timely, relevant and well respected. He was not only a First Class traditional ruler, but a highly respected and revered leader, full of wisdom and integrity. His demise has surely robbed the state of his invaluable counsel and advice.

3 On behalf of the entire Berom nation, BECO shares with the Mwaghavul nation, in the pain of the loss of our Royal father. We pray God almighty, to grant the soul of our Royal Father eternal rest. May God in His infinite mercies comfort the immediate family, Mwaghavul nation, the state and nation and also grant us all, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
