“Lagos SWAN urged the Gafaar family to accept our condolences over Mama’s death. We believe she is gone to rest with her maker.

“Though, no matter how old our parents are, we still don’t wish to lose them, but we cannot question the Almighty Allah because He gives and He takes.

“However, our prayer is for Almighty Allah to grant her Aljanah Fridau and may her gentle soul rest in perfect peace,” Oshundun prayed.
