“The plethora of condolence messages and multifarious visits from sympathisers following the sudden and irreparable loss of our amiable colleague was overwhelming and had, indeed, truly shown that in adversity, we know our genuine friends.

“Our profound appreciation particularly goes to the State Government of Osun, under the benevolent leadership of the Governor, Raul Aregbesola, for prompt positive official steps taken to mitigate the trauma of the sad episode by releasing a total sum of N17,526, 307.76k to cover such sundry critical matters as burial assistance to the Family (N3m), medical treatment of the deceased’s driver and cost of retrieval of her official car (N930,000); her arrears of salaries and allowances from July, 2015 to the point of death (N4.42m) and her Group Life Insurance entitlements (N9.1m).
