Drowned UNILAG Students Buried Amidst Tears At Ikoyi Cemetry, Lagos (Photos)
Tears flowed freely on Friday at the Ikoyi Cemetary, Lagos, as the remains of Adesola Ogunmefun and Olufunmilayo Odusina, two University of Lagos post-graduate students who drowned and died during one of their friend’s birthday party at a private beach in the Lekki area of the city on June 6, 2016, were finally laid to rest.
An emotional tribute service which started as early as 11:00am, saw family members, friends and well wishers of the departed young women pour out in droves to bid them farewell.
In glowing words, mourners at the event paid tributes to the victims who many described as very charming and promising.
Sunmibola Ogunmefun, a sibling to the late Adesola, said even though the family is in mourning, they are consoled by the good life she lived and impact she made during her sojourn on earth.
“Very simplistic, you’ve never been the kind to take things too seriously and your smile is from ear to ear. Keeping malice with you was futile, you’d always find a way to break the ice…never one to hold grudge.
“Sola, in your short years on earth, you’ve connected us with so many people and your death has brought reconciliation…you are indeed a special one,” she said while paying homage to her late sister.
Modupe Mujota, a boss to the late Adesola, described her as not only a workaholic but also a young lady with a warm heart.
In her tribute, she said, “Desola took care of me. She would wake me up daily at 6am and like a child I would often beg her for 15 more minutes. As many times as I asked, she would oblige me, she was that caring.
Adeshola Ogunmefun was buried around 11:30am while Funmi Odusina was buried around 12:20pm close to each other.
“Desola, our loss is heaven’s gain, light it up as always with your brilliant smiles. We love you dearly.”
Born on April 12, 1989, Adesola attended the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria Staff School Ikeja, Lagos, Home Science Association of Nigeria Secondary School and Covenant University before proceeding to the University of Lagos for a Masters degree in International Law.
Until her painful demise, she worked as Personal Assistant to the Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology, Ogun State.
Odusina equally described as an easy-going and lovable young woman, was born on February 13, 1991.
