A friend wrote on her Alma Mater’s Whatsapp platform, “They say we never die but we just change form and continue our existence in another realm. If this is true, I’m sadly mourning you with my tears. It would have been joy to our world if you weren’t cut down.. Bola Aworetan (CO99, Pol. Sci) came home from the UK to bury her mum last week or so, and same last week, little did she know that she won’t return to the UK again to continue her life. This most adorable, pretty woman, was shot down in her car in front of her two children at Guru Maharaji in Ibadan, this past Thursday; unwilling forcing her to escort her mum to the great unknown. Your death is too gripping for me. I am bewildered and I don’t know how to mourn you. I don’t even think that I will ever do. And if it’s true that death is not a full stop but a comma, may you continue the remainder of your time in a better realm. May your beautiful soul not wander around. Adios Bola.”
