Saturday the 22nd day of December 2018 remains a special day to remember in the minds of friends and family of Dankwambo, the Taliban Gombe.
The early morning cork crow and the sound of Adhan call to prayer woke the city people for the day.
The Harmatan cloud covering the early morning sunshine brought a cool atmospheric condition over the entire Gombe Emirate with the sun pipping from its shell to give a little warmth for the young and the elderly, making all the guests of the Dankwambos comfortable. Its indeed a heavenly blessed day, only for the royals and specials.
