An official statement on the passing of Chief Rachel Tabuno Oniga

With a heavy heart and total submission to God, we write to announce passing unto glory of our beloved sister, mother and grandmother, Chief Rachel Tabuno Oniga.

She died in Lagos hospital at the age of 64, on Friday, 30th of July 2021, at about 10pm. Contrary to diverse reports informing that she died from COVID-19 complications, we write to inform the general public that she died from a heart related issue, an ailment she battled with for a short period before her demise.

We accept her sudden transition as God’s design, and we see it as a function of a race of life well finished. Painful as it may be we accept it in good faith and in total submission to her maker… We therefore desire to be allowed to mourn her death privately for now, as we do this with deep sense of respect for her soul and the glorious life she lived.

Burial arrangement will be announced in due cause. We appreciate the calls, messages, condolences expressed by everyone, and we pray for a sweet repose of her beautiful soul. Please, accept this release as the only authentic one on behalf of the family, until we come up with another.

Thank you
