ANGELA ONYEADOR BURIED
July 17, 2012, was the day the very gorgeous Late socialite and Consummate Art lover-Angela Onyeador was finally laid to rest at the Ikoyi Vaults and Gardens amidst a very solemn gathering. Before the burial yesterday, the wake keep for the very much loved lady had taken place on Monday, July 16, 2012, at a small Catholic Church at 41, Ribadu Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
In attendance at the Wake Keep service to pay their last respect to their beloved friend and family member, who had passed on to the great beyond a few weeks ago, were her Husband-Captain Samuel G. Nayson, a Pilot, who we heard was a strong pillar of strength for the lady in her last days, to show how much he loved his late wife, at a point during the wake, he gave over to the emotions in him and had tears rolling down uncontrollably down his cheeks, also there at the wake, were her 2 kids-Ikem and Adaora who we hear are in their early 20's. Some of the other faces we could recognize at the Church were the CEO of Emzor, Stella Okoli, the very cerebral wife of the late MKO,Dr. Doyin Abiola, Mrs. Abah Folawiyo, the everly gorgeous Fifi Ejindu, Senator Udo Udoma, Nkiru Anumudu, the publisher of Vanguard Newspaper, Mr. Sam Amuka Pemu and a few others.
