HID Awolowo to be buried in a Gold Casket & white damask she kept 36 years ago
Wife of Late sage, Obafemi Awolowo, Mrs H.I.D Awolowo who died on September nineteenth, will be buried on November 25th in a white damask fabric she purchased and kept for this reason 36 years back.
Her little girl, Reverend (Mrs) Tola Oyediran, revealed this to journalists.
Mama in her unique way had kept a white damask to be laid in her casket whenever she died since the day she stopped her fabric sales business. And if I am not mistaken, I think she stopped selling fabrics around 1979; meaning that since then, she had kept that damask for that purpose. That is her wish and it will be like that.” she said.
Oyediran further said that Mama will be covered in a gold coffin which will be acquired from the United States of America.
She will be buried adjacent to her spouse inside the Awolowo catacomb in the family compound in Okenne, Ogun state.
