Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has condoled with the state commissioner of police Hakeem Odumosu over the death of his mother Sikirat Odumosu.
Mrs Odumosu died on Thursday at Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilisan Remo, Ogun State after a brief illness. She was aged 88.
Mr Sanwo-Olu called on the bereaved family, associates and the people of Ijebu-Ode to take solace in the fact that the deceased lived a good life before her departure.
The governor’s message was contained in a statement by his chief press secretary Gboyega Akosile.
He said the elderly and wise counsel of the late octogenarian would be sorely missed, not only by her family but the people who were close to her during her lifetime.
Sanwo-Olu urged the police commissioner to see the death of his mother as the opening of a new chapter and new reality for them.
“On behalf of the good people of Lagos State and my adorable wife, Ibijoke, I sympathize with the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on the demise of his beloved mother, Alhaja Sikirat Odumosu.
“I pray that God will grant the late Alhaja Odumosu eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.
