All was going well at the high-class church ceremony which had minister of power and steel and Eniola’s mentor, Dr Kayode Fayemi in attendance.

Trouble started when the daughter of the former commissioner for education and environment in Ekiti state who had come down from America for the burial started to complain of headache.

All efforts to relieve her on the spot proved abortive and she had to be rushed to a private hospital where she sadly gave up the ghost.

As news of her demise filtered in, the news outlet gathered that all festivities at the burial ceremony came to a complete stop. The uplifting music being dished out from the bandstand by entertainer Yinka Ayefele was replaced with serious wailing and lamentations from the shocked guests.

The ambassador who also doubles as Nigeria’s representative to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia is reported to have been badly shaken by the turn of events. She is still coming to terms with the painful loss, even as the body of her late daughter has been deposited at a morgue.
