A member of the House of Representatives Shina Peller has lost his sister Bimbo Peller who is based in the United Kingdom.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Mr Peller, 44, said she died in London and called on the public to pray for the repose of her soul.
”Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. May Almighty Allah be merciful to my beloved sister @bimbopeller who passed away in London. It is the will of Allah and I appreciate those who sympathize with us. I appeal that we pray for her soul instead of calling or messaging me. May Allah forgive her for all her sins and grant her eternal rest. Amin yarobi,” he wrote.
The deceased leaves behind a set of twins and husband. The cause of death could not be immediately ascertained.
Peller owns the popular nightclub Quilox in Victoria Island, Lagos which was temporarily shut down in December 2019 over noise pollution and traffic congestion.
