Celebrity reporter and publisher of Giraffe magazine, Mr. Akin Sokoya, has lost his mother.
The deceased, Mrs Iyabode Afolabi-Sokoya, a community leader and devote Christian, was aged 87 at the time of her passing on Friday 6th of November, 2020, in Ibadan, Oyo State.
One of the children of the deceased told this magazine that on the day she passed, “Mama had her breakfast as normal on Friday and had some rest. She ate twice daily because of her age but had warm water or fruit in the afternoon. She was due for her afternoon diet when we found out that she has passed on peacefully on the chair she was sitting on.”
Further information on funeral rites, we gathered, will be announced by the family soon.
