It was indeed tear-jerking episode yesterday, the 10th of June 2016, at the Ikoyi Cemetery when the remains of Adesola Ogunmefun (27) who was nicknamed ‘Obaomo’ and Olufunmilayo Odusina (24), the two University of Lagos, UNILAG post-graduate students who drowned at the Elegushi Beach during their friend’s birthday on June 6, 2016, were finally laid to rest.
The whole atmosphere elicited agony and grief as almost all who came could not hold back their tears. Though as usual, some of the people who came share a belief that the death has spiritual connotation, saying the late brilliant minds were daughters of the river, hence, the unfortunate death, that however did not stop the torrent of tributes from many more who knew about their born again status before the final curtain was drawn.

In her words she says ‘Adesola, I had the pleasure of meeting you once and It was enough to know what a lovely bright light you were, rest in peace’
