The husband of the murdered Osun state permanent secretary of Bureau of General Services, Mrs Olufunke Oluwakemi Kolawole, has revealed the strange message she got from his wife three weeks before her death.
The death of Mrs Kolawole, who was reportedly shot died by unknown gunmen along Okene-Abuja Road in Kogi State, on her way to Abuja last Thursday, stirred mixed feelings about the actual cause of the death whether it was an assassination by kidnappers or murder by Armed robbers.
Mr. Tunde Kolawole, the husband of the deceased however spoke with journalists on the text message he got from the wife before she encountered mysterious death.
“About three weeks ago, she sent a text message to me. I was in Lagos then. When I read the message, it said: ‘In case anything happens, please take care of the children. Make sure they are comfortable.’
“When I read the message, I thought it was her normal way of asking me to care for the children. I never suspected anything bad, neither did I imagine that anything was going to happen to her.
On the speculated death, he expressed doubt on the tendency of his wife being killed by hired assassins.
“I don’t want to believe that she had a premonition of her death before sending that message to me. I only felt that it was her normal way of asking me to take care of the children.”
“I can’t say whether they were kidnappers because the manner in which they attacked her showed that they were not kidnappers, but robbers because some of them searched her bags and made away with money, her handsets and other valuable items”, Mr. Kolawole noted.
