Director at the Lagos Internal Revenue Service (LIRS), Olanike Disu, who gave up the ghost exactly  6 weeks after her husband passed on is to be buried today (Monday, September 11, 2017).

Last week Sunday, September 3rd, was her birthday during which she was buffeted by a blizzard of well wishers especially on social media. A few friends even gathered at her house to felicitate with her. They partied and wished her long life before disappearing into the night.

Unknown to them, it was an eternal send forth the small birthday get-together would turn out to be. About 24hours later, the woman popularly known as Madam Tax, was announced dead. What could have happened? No simple or ornamental tribute could capture an essence of Nike’s extraordinary appeal. Men were swayed by her beauty and poise, but her hold on women was even more phenomenal; she stoked intense feelings of gratitude and contentment in most people privileged enough to have made her acquaintance during her 54-year spell on earth. Since her sad departure from the mortal world, memories of her assail her loved ones like a bittersweet gust of cold breeze after a discomforting heatstroke. However, like the wave of the ocean, Disu has experienced the heights and depths of life and hardly knew joy and rest in her latter days.

Indeed, within two years, she lost some of the men dearest to her. First, it was her brother-in-law, Mr. Tajudeen Disu, the Managing Director of the Lekki Free Trade Zone, who was shot dead during a clash between mobile police officers and youth of Okunraiye community, Lagos, October 12th, 2015.

It was a most gruesome death that shook the Lagos social establishment. Few months after, she lost her father, Pa. Elkanah Olatunji Kobnah Williams. Earlier this year, she lost her husband who reportedly just slumped and died. Exactly, six weeks after her husband, Abayomi Disu, passed on in July, Olanike joined him. Her husband, Abayomi Aderibigbe Disu was born in 1961, and he was the C.E.O of Front Page Advertising Agency located in Ogudu area of Lagos. He got married to Olanike in 1989, and both are survived by two children.

He reportedly slumped and died in the early hours of July 25 and was buried on July 26, 2017. He was 57 when he died, while his wife died at 54. The mother of two never quite recovered from the shocking death which left her to take care of their two kids alone. A 1986 graduate of the Oklahoma City University where she bagged a BA in Mass Communications, the late Disu was a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria.
