‘‘She has been suffering from breast cancer for more than six years. One of her breasts was cut off. And since then, she has been suffering from one complication to the other.
“She called me last week and pleaded due to ill health not to remove her from the verification exercise I embarked on to ascertain true members of the guild in Lagos.
“Yesterday morning, I got a call that she was dead. Though I am yet to visit the family but it is a great loss for us. I pray for the repose of her soul,” Ibe said.
