High society lady and Iyalode of Gbagura in Ogun State, Chief Mrs. Adunni Bankole, has passed on. The ex wife of Chief Alani Bankole died today, Saturday, January 3, 2015. She had been ill and in coma for days prior to her demise.
But the saddest thing is that she died on the day her daughter, Mopelola was getting
married, an event she was eagerly looking forward to and had even planned elaborately for. Her husband and top Ogun politician, is the father of Hon. Dimeji Bankole, the erstwhile Speaker, Federal House of Representatives.
A jolly good fellow and ever ready to share the little she has with friends, she trained as a journalist and until lately was very active on the social circuit. She was in her mid 50s and left behind four children, according to YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine. Their names are Toyin, Mope, Layi and Desola.
