“My heartfelt condolences go to my brother Mohammed Dele Belgore (MDB) SAN, his sister Barrister Biliqees and the entire family and the Alanamu on this sad development.

We draw solace from her being a true servant of God who lived for family and for humanity,” the statement said.

“I also commiserate with the Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN) whose foundation member Alhaja was until her death.

We beseech Allah to grant Alhaja Maryam, her husband late Justice Babatunde, and our dead Al-jannah Firdaus.”

The Governor has meanwhile visited the GRA home of the family to commiserate with the family.

The Governor visited the home in company of his brother and the Mutawali of Ilorin Dr. Alimi AbdulRazaq.
