Olanike Disu: shocks over sudden death


The sudden death in Lagos of Olanike Disu, a tax expert and a former director at the Lagos Internal Revenue Service continues to provoke consternation in social media.

The beautiful mother of two,  died 4 September, barely 24 hours after celebrating her birthday on  3 September. Her husband reportedly died just weeks before.

“What’s happening?”, says a post on Facebook. “We want to ask.. But unquestionable God, you understand all things”.

“Beautiful lady. Maybe the pain was too much for her. Hope the children have loving people to look after them,” says another.

A man who attended the birthday on Sunday was especially gutted by her sudden departure. He wrote on Facebook:  “If death were to take census of who is next, I will probably think you won’t find space in the next 40 years but alas a day after your birthday Monday 4th September, you bade us final farewell.

“I still teased you on Sunday that I had no birthday gift for you but you should go to any Coscharis Motors and pick the latest BMW,  that you should tell them I will pay in future. I said you deserve even more. My pretty Mrs Olanike Disu, an amiable friend and a trustworthy Aunty. Sleep on the beloved!!!”
