Iyalode Adunni Bankole Dies On Daughter's Wedding Day

The Iyalode of Gbagura land, Ogun State,  Chief (Mrs.) Adunni Bankole is dead. The step-mother of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Dimeji Bankole, who was journalist’s delight any day.
The Gbagura high chief, according to close sources have been ill for days before she finally gave up the ghost on Saturday morning, January 3rd, 2015, being the wedding of her daughter, Mopelola.

She was brought up to see life on its simple side. Aside a matter of fact, simplicity rules her life. A lot of people screen their calls, she regard such people as people who believe life is acting. But to her, life is as simple as the daybreak and sunset. There is nothing to life but what you make of it. And if you approach life from the simple side of it, you are likely to understand people and what life is all about, and thereby live a fulfilling life. 

And you must know that living a fulfilling life is not about being rich or occupying a top position.  It has to do with your personality, what you believe in and what you are. Her daily life preaches simplicity, love and accepting others as if they are yours and that the other person is as good as you are. She was able to live life without the usual paraphernalia that people believe must come with having a name or being a person of repute. She don’t have a personal assistant, and of course, she was down-to-earth person.

Bankole, who was known for attending high profile parties, dumped her front row position on the Lagos social circle following her dead.
She was one person who was always in the news. Remember that she was a trained journalist and this possibly explains why she was close to the media and why she was the darling of the media any day. She was in the news  when she clocked 55 last year on march 29 2014. She was a graduate of  Bible School, bagged a degree in Theology. 

Many were surprised because she holds several Chieftaincy titles from Abeokuta, the capital of her home state, Ogun State, among which is the Iyalode of Gbagura, Owu,  a title which has become synonymous with her name over the years.
Survived by children
