It’s quite tragic for her family especially the two children who witnessed life snuffed out of their mother as they drove to Ibadan, Oyo State.
The deceased, Bola Aworetan, had travelled down to Nigeria from the United Kingdom where she lived and worked, to bury her mum.
The burial party attracted people from all walks of life and she hosted guests at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island Lagos.
According to the tributes written by friends and colleagues in Nigeria, she was shot dead by bandits in her car at the Guru Maharaji village, on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway, as the car conveying her and her kids approached Ibadan Oyo State.
The incident which occurred last Thursday, August 19, 2021, has thrown many who knew the deceased into mourning.
A friend wrote on her Alma Mater’s Whatsapp platform, “They say we never die but we just change form and continue our existence in another realm. If this is true, I’m sadly mourning you with my tears.
