Family plans befitting burial for British School founder, Biodun Laja
Abiodun, one of Nigeria’s most celebrated matriarchs, died last Sunday, May 26 in a highbrow hospital in the United States (US). She was aged 69.
Abiodun died after a back surgery operation. Though the operation was successful, she gave up the ghost five days later after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Survived by two sons and many grandchildren, Abiodun was the younger sister of Mrs. Kofo Olugbesan, a former top official of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), a prominent lawyer and businesswoman, and elder sister of Mrs. Olukemi Nelson, prominent politician and National Women Leader (Southwest) of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
To Abiodun, education had always been a passion, especially the British curriculum, in which she was trained. After running her school for 25 years, she took a bigger challenge to own a secondary school at the highbrow area of Lagos.
