BREAKING NEWS: First Lady of Nigeria Dies In Spain

BoggyWoggy is sad.
Because, the tragedy is bad.

The breaking news on the CNN shook the whole of Nigeria as millions of Nigerians were going to fellowship and worship God in their various places of worship in churches and mosques.
"Our First Lady Mrs. Stella Obasanjo has died!"
"What?! What happened?"
"They said she died after surgery in Spain."
The news left millions petrified as they were in a state of shock.Speechless.
Stella Obasanjo was the apple of the eye of President Olusegun Obasanjo.
She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Because, she was born into a very wealthy family. The Abebe Family is a household name in Nigeria. Her elder brother the medical specialist Dr.Abebe is a popular physician and their estate the Abebe Court is located in the exclusive Government Reserved Area of Ikoyi on the Lagos Island in Nigeria.

Her sudden death would leave her husband and family and friends in shock.
This is a terrible tragedy.
We were still trembling from the shocking news of the death of Stella Obasanjo when the horrible news of the Bellview plane crash hit us like Hurricane Katrina.
"Over 115 people died in the plane crash near Abuja the capital of Nigeria," my cousin reported.
Both the crew and passengers perished!
I was speechless.

Well, for the President of Nigeria, "Uncle Sege" as we call him, has other wives to comfort him. But, he would miss the petite beauty he chose to make his First Lady even though she was not his first wife. And the first wife is very much alive and well. I wonder how they would all be feeling now.

As Nigeria mourns, I send my condolences to all the bereaved families, relatives, friends and all Nigerians. May God comfort us all.

ABUJA, Nigeria - Stella Obasanjo, the wife of Nigeria's president, died Sunday in Spain. She was 59.
Her death came the same day a passenger jet carrying 117 people crashed shortly after takeoff from Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, with officials saying dozens on board survived.
Stella Obasanjo, described as President Olusegun Obasanjo's "beloved wife," died after undergoing surgery, according to a brief statement signed by presidential spokeswoman Remi Oyo. No further details were given.
The Spanish Foreign Ministry said Obasanjo's wife died Sunday morning at a hospital in the southern Spanish resort city of Marbella, where she had been on a private visit.
