Expressing anger over the country’s failed system, Bolanle Olukanni wrote,

“I met Bolanle 2020. She wanted me to do some work for her. When I was ready to buy a house I called her and she was the one who found my house. I told her I don’t have all the cash for this purchase but she didn’t doubt me. She was so excited for me. She would say God will do it… God will provide. I would call her and say “bolanle how are you?” And she would respond “bolanle I’m fine”. It always made me chuckle.

This year I had asked if she needed prayer for anything and she said she wanted to have a baby… So I prayed with her about it. Many years she wanted for this pregnancy. I don’t know what else to say because I am so sad. Bolanle had an amazing business so much in the last year. This was good year. I am tried because this country keeps doing this yo people. Taking so much from us and just being wicked. I don’t know what else to say. Please remember to pray for BOLANLE’s family and her daughter as well”.

How she was shot – Husband spills

According to him, “On December 25, my wife, nieces, nephews, and cousins, who had come for the holiday, all went to church. On our way back, my wife said since it was Christmas Day, we should take everyone out, so, we went to a supermarket at Abraham Adesanya, then to Domino’s Pizza.

“After that, we headed towards Ajah to do a U-turn to come back to Abraham Adesanya. When we took the U-turn, we saw policemen stopping some vehicles. As we approached them, they said we should stop, and in the process, we heard a loud sound on my wife’s side window. All of a sudden, I saw blood gushing out of her chest.

“I immediately ran out; my sister-in-law, who was also with us, ran out and held the policeman; he cocked his gun at her too. Talking to him was pointless, so I went to see if anything could be done; I saw my wife gasping for breath, and by that time, my sister-in-law had brought the policeman into the car and pushed him into the front seat.

“We drove to a hospital but they said they couldn’t handle it; we eventually took her to Grandville Hospital, where she was confirmed dead. The policemen took her body and put it in the truck; they wanted me to follow them but I said I needed to go and settle my children.
