Pressident Buhari, ministers, 16 govs, others bid HID Awolowo farewell


ABEOKUTA—After 10 days of burial activities in honour of Mrs. HID Awolowo, the late matriarch of the Awolowo family,  she was interred yesterday, around 1:45 pm beside her husband, late Chief Obafemi Awolowo.


The interment which was attended by only family members and some invited bishops, was done in a mausoleum built within the premises of the Awolowo country home in Ikenne.
Apart from the two surviving children, Rev. Omotola Oyediran and her husband, and Ambassador Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu and her husband, almost all the grandchildren and great-grand children were at the graveside where the remains of their mother were lowered.
Newsmen were barred from covering the interment but were allowed to cover other activities within the premises.
