A UK-based Nigerian woman, Bolanle Aworetan Omojuwa has been killed by gunmen suspected to be bandits along the Lagos/Ibadan expressway in the presence of her children.
According to viral reports, the deceased had returned to the country to celebrate her late mother’s life and had travelled to Oyo with her two children on Thursday, August 19, 2021.
She was, however, shot dead by suspected bandits at the Guru Maharaji village, on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway.
Friends, loved ones and former schoolmates have taken to various platforms to mourn her.
One of them wrote, “They say we never die, we just change form and continue our existence in another realm. If this is true, I’m sadly mourning you with my tears. It would have been joy to our world if we weren’t cut down. Bola Aworetan (CO99, Pol Sci) came home from the UK to bury her mom last week or so, and same last week, little did we know she won’t return to the UK again to continue her life.
“This most adorable pretty woman was shot dead in her car in front of her children at Guru Maharaji this past Thursday; unwilling forcing her to escort her mum to the great unknown. Your death is too gripping for me. I’m bewildered and I don’t know how to mourn you…”
