Lalong who had earlier paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased and the traditional council in Kwande urged the king makers and the people of the Chiefdom to be consoled by the legacies he left behind as well as honour his memory by upholding the traditions of the Kwo nation and conducting the selection of his successor in a peaceful manner.

The officiating Priest said the death of Long Kwo again reminds the people that life is transient and God will demand accountability from everyone.
