“The family has decided to bury her quietly and it appears to be a family arrangement together with some family friends.”

“If you knew Ronke before she died, you would know she didn’t deserve to die like this. She was a vibrant and energetic woman."

"She and her late brother, Jide, were the most outspoken in the family and if this had happened to any other person while they lived, this matter would have gone farther than this.”

The death of Ronke came to be after having a confrontation with her husband, who alleged that the deceased was having an extra marital affair with her boss, Kayode Oluokun.

Oluokun has declined to comment concerning the allegation, stating that he needs more time.
