Wife of the Senator representing Oyo Central in the National Assembly, Teslim Folarin, is dead.
The woman, Angela Nwaka Folarin, a lawyer, died at the age of 47.
Senator Folarin’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, YSO Olaniyi, made this known in a terse statement on Friday.
Sources close to the family said the death was sudden and unexpected.
Olaniyi’s terse statement confirmed that: “With total submission to the will of Almighty Allah, we announce the death of our wife, mother and sister, Chief (Barr.) Angela Nwaka Folarin.
“The wife of Oyo Central Senator was confirmed dead on Friday afternoon. She breathed her last in UK.
“The deceased was hale and hearty until the angel of death knocked the door.
“May Almighty God Comfort us and Grant Late Angela an eternal rest.”
Senator Folarin is said to be very devastated.
It is not yet known what the woman was doing in the UK but it not likely to be medical tourism since there was no indication of illhealth before the trip.
