His brother posted a tribute on Facebook. Read below:
“What is the meaning of life
Why do we live like death is far from us and then it storms like whirlwind
The happiness of life doesn’t even last long
One moment it’s a good news the next moment it’s a terribly bad news
Several things encourages us to keep running the heavenly race but certain things are beyond our understanding.
The death of a great soldier like you Abba Peter Ameh is discouraging
We wake up everyday hopeful and busy rushing around living life that we forget to ponder why we live.
Abba Peter Ameh, you struggled and fought to the end collected your NYSC certificate on Friday and you were happily coming home to show mama and everyone but you got snatched by death on Sunday.
So I ask what is life?
One minute struggle the next is death!
WHY THE STRESS??????
remember that you left your humble twin here and mama is not finding it funny with your sudden departure.
I have cried and making sure I don’t make the mistake of questioning God cos you are His and with Him. I know the devil has no hand in your death because God allowed it.
The biggest comfort now is that you are with Jesus.
You lived well but not long enough, you were so humble and loved Jesus, you were an encouragement to many that indeed God is faithful. We will miss you o it still feels like a dream but God is our comfort.
Sleep well brother!!!!!
We will miss you especially your twin”
