Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday described Risikat Adegeye, former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and one of the wives of renowned musician King Sunny Ade, as a trustworthy and committed member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adegeye, a two-term member of the Lagos State House of Assembly Service Commission, died in the early hours of Tuesday.

Mr Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued by his chief press secretary Gboyega Akosile said the former House of Representatives candidate in Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency spent her life in the service of humanity, particularly for the people of Amuwo Odofin Constituency who she represented at the Lagos State House of Assembly as well as APC members at the grassroots level.

The governor also commiserated with the deceased husband King Sunny Ade over the demise of his beloved wife.

“The death of Hon. Risikat Adegeye is a painful and big loss to Lagos APC, the deceased family and friends. She will be missed by her husband, King Sunny Ade, family, friends and the entire political class, particularly the people of Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area.

“I pray that God would grant the soul of our beloved Mrs Risikat Adegeye eternal rest and comfort the immediate and political family of the deceased,” the governor said.
