OH, SADE ADETIBA IS GONE!


She’s gone! Yes, gone, gone and gone. Friends say she was ill for a while, but many of course did not know about that. 

She was 63 years old. An astute lawyer, Sade Adetiba was Ex-IGI Group Deputy MD. She was also a Deputy Director at the Federal Ministry of Justice. 

Folasade Adetiba played the big league in her chosen legal profession. Up on the wall in her Lekki based office in Lagos is a framed photograph of ex-Military President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida while inspecting something of note with the ex-Attorney General Chief Bola Ajibola and Folasade Adetiba was there in the photograph with them.
This particular photograph struggles for space with numerous awards here and there in the spick and span office.

She also ran a foundation she called, ‘Support Bridges Initiative’ that was dear to her heart, one which she started with a seed support from friends. She was not just a lawyer, she was a UK accredited mediator, a solicitor and advocate of the Supreme Court, a teacher and legal consultant. She sat at the family court of Lagos State, a child rights consultant and expert and she was a legal secretary of the diocese of Lagos Anglican Communion.

Born into the Olulade family, her late father was a Reverend of The Anglican Communion; he was a Vicar in two Anglican churches both in Abeokuta and Ibadan. While her mom was a professional, a Sunday school teacher.
