It was a tragic day for the family of one of Nigeria’s society matriarchs and Hon Dimeji Bankole’s step mother, Iyalode Adunni Bankole, who passed away on Saturday.
The Gbagura high chief had been ill for days. A reliable source informed us that she was in comma for five days before she finally gave up the ghost on Saturday, January 3, 2015.
Sadly, she died on the wedding day of one of her daughters, Mopelola, who is heavily pregnant.
We confirmed that the daughter’s Nikkah was on going at The Event Centre, near Afrika Shine, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos, while a section of her friends and family members are making arrangements and consultations about her burial plans.
