Grace Onaiwu Omoigui, the mother of a former Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Ifueko Omoigui-Okauru, has been confirmed dead.
The family, in a statement on Saturday, said that the 82-year-old died from multiple gunshot injuries sustained in an armed robbery attack in Benin City on her way from Guaranty Trust Bank, Sapele Road branch.
”Mama G, as she loved to be called, fought a gallant fight to live but the Lord decided that her time on this earth was done,” the eldest child of the deceased, Dr Nowamagbe Omoigui, said in the statement.
“She leaves behind a legacy of love to one’s neighbour regardless of cost and personal sacrifice. Even in the face of unprovoked attack, she did what she does best: rightly question the indefensible actions of the armed robbers as she felt it was wrong.”
