He urged the bereaved family as believers of Allah to submit to the will of God who gives and takes life.
Akeredolu prayed that Allah will comfort the family over the loss and spread his wing of protection over all others she left behind.
However, the governor lauded the security operatives for being proactive in apprehending the suspect allegedly behind the death of Khadijat.
He assured that the suspect would face the wrath of the law if at the end he is found guilty.
Oluboyo who described her daughter’s death as devastating, thanked Akeredolu for showing the family strong support and care despite their different political affiliation.
