A friend of the deceased, Iye Adams Yaro, said on Facbook that he recently visited an orphanage to make a donation, assuring her that he would always stand by the children in the home. “You left our Orphanage on Monday after dropping bags of food for the Children. I felt bad that your white caftan was stained but I knew that I dare not stop you. You told me not to worry that you’ll stand with us to get more support for our children. I met you just last year but your selflessness and commitment to our Children always thrills me. It’s exactly one week to your wedding and the news am receiving is of your demise this morning. It’s painful, so painful. I can’t explain how I feel. Oh death! Rest in peace”.
