Chief Tom Ikimi, The Oduma of Africa, My leader.
I wish to express my condolence and that of my family on the unfortunate demise of your kind and warm hearted sister.
Aunty Tessy was a loving woman. I was drawn to her in the summer of 1983, when she noticed the distress of my family regarding excess luggage at the British Airways check-in counter in Victoria Station, London, UK. Aunty Tessy, as we affectionately referred to her thereafter, volunteered to have our luggage checked in as hers as she was travelling very light.
She didn’t know us!
As an impressionable young man I was smitten by her kindness.
This was how I saw her and viewed her till this day.
I pray God accept her soul and she rest in perfect peace.
Once again, please accept our sympathy and may God grant you and your family the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.
God bless her soul.
Chris Osa Nehikhare
Hon. Commissioner Youth&Humanitarian.
