Veteran Nollywood actress Remi Surutu lost her daughter Ayomikun Ileriayo to sickle cell anaemia at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).
This was announced July 2 by Actor/Filmmaker, Yomi Fabiyi, in a post on Instagram.
The remains of Ayomikun Ileriayo was this morning laid to rest at the Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Meanwhile, a heartbroken Remi Surutu took to her Instagram page to pay an emotional tribute to her late daughter:
As a mother and child, it is natural we share both physical and abstract tours, laughter, pain and compliments; but we honestly shared a bond I cannot find a most appropriate adjective for it yet.
As your friend, It has never been in my intentions to see you go through any form of pain. But as human, pain can emanate from any form and when your pain began, I have always sought God’s favour to transfer your pains so you will be fully lively as you want. And in your pain, you were strong for us. We went everywhere together.
You were my immediate younger sister and remain one of the best things that ever happened to me. My confidante. You have never forsaken me or your sister. Dupe and Demilade will miss you.
I will keep your memories forever; and in all honesty I can only console myself with the believe that I will see you again my beautiful, precious daughter.
Please rest well till we meet to part no more my love. My prayers and affection for you will be eternal.
I have said thank you to all that are helping to give you a lasting resting place.
May God grant the family comfort…
