A United Kingdom-based Nigerian lady, identified as Bola Aworetan, who came into the country for her mother’s burial, has been brutally murdered in Ibadan, Oyo State.
A source told Buzzupdate News that the deceased had come to Nigeria from the United Kingdom (UK), where she lived and worked, to bury her mother before she was murdered.
The burial for the mother 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.
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.’’
The late UK-based woman was an alumni member of the University of Ado-Ekiti (UNAD).
When contacted, the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, said there was nothing like that in the state.
“To my own knowledge, there is nothing like that. I just spoke with the DPO if there is anything like that. I would have been the first person to know or maybe the victim’s family didn’t report to the police,” the CP said.
