The biological children of the late Alhaja Mufutiatu Bello—Mustapha Bello, Olamide Bello, Funmilayo Bello, Shehu Bello, and Alhaja Omobolanle Bello—stood united in their grief and remembrance. Each child, a testament to their mother’s enduring love and guidance, shared stories that painted a vivid picture of her remarkable life.

Her granddaughter reminisced about a grandmother who was the heart of the family, a presence that will be profoundly missed.

Sheikh Yahya Agboola, in his enlightening lecture, emphasized the transient nature of life. He reminded everyone that death is an inevitable part of our existence, and therefore, it is crucial to live a life of righteousness and compassion. His words encouraged the gathering to reflect on their own lives and the legacy they wish to leave behind.
