The late UK-based woman was an alumni member of the University of Ado-Ekiti, now Ekiti State University. A friend wrote on her Alma Mater’s WhatsApp platform:

 “They say we never die, we just change form and continue our existence in another realm. If this is true, I’m sadly mourning you with my tears. It would have been joy to our world if we weren’t cut down. Bola Aworetan (CO99, Pol Sci) came home from the UK to bury her mom last week or so, and same last week, little did we know she won’t return to the UK again to continue her life.

“This most adorable pretty woman was shot dead in her car in front of her children at Guru Maharaji this past Thursday; unwilling forcing her to escort her mum to the great unknown. Your death is too gripping for me. I’m bewildered and I don’t know how to mourn you…”

When contacted, the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, said “to my own knowledge, there is nothing like that.

“I just spoke with the DPO if there is anything like that. I would have been the first person to know or maybe the victim’s family didn’t report to the police,” the CP said.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a Canadian-based Nigerian man was murdered in Lagos, a few days after returning to his hometown in Benin, Edo State.
