The family members of a female blogger have been left in a state of pain following the sad death of their child.

A young Nigerian blogger, Oluwafeyidara Adekoya has met her untimely death just two days to the new year after she was crushed to death by a vehicle on the 30th December while trying to escape from two suspected robbers at Anthony bus stop in Lagos state.
One of the hoodlums was wounded in the accident, which happened at midnight.
According to The Nation, the late Oluwafeyidara Adekoya was returning from church when the motorcycle riding hoodlums pounced on her. As they attempted to dispossess her of her bag and phones, she raised alarm and took to her heels.
However, the hoodlums chased after her before an oncoming vehicle ran them over. The rider escaped, but the hit-and-run driver ran over  his accomplice and Adekoya.
A witness, who gave his name as Uche,  said: “She died on the spot. The other robber was unconscious but he was stabilised by the Lagos State Ambulance Services (LASAMBUS), that came to the scene with officials from LASEMA.
“She was waiting to take a bus and a bike with a passenger appeared. They struggled to rob her and she raised the alarm. A vehicle later came and ran into them. While the rider rode away, the lady and one of the robbers were hit. The lady died while the guy was critically injured.
“The suspect was moved to the hospital. I did not get his name but the lady was said to be a journalist with In-Situ Media.”
LASEMA General Manager Adesina Tiamiyu said the injured suspect had been handed over to the police.
He said: “Yes there was an accident involving a young woman and a man. They were knocked down by a vehicle. The woman died on the spot. We found the man unconscious and resuscitated him. He was taken to Gbagada General Hospital.
“We were told the man was a robbery suspect and that he and his accomplice had attempted to rob the lady before they were knocked down by a vehicle. So, we handed over the man to the police for further action.”
But police spokesman Chike Oti, a Superintendent of Police (SP), said the police were investigating a hit-and-run case and not robbery.
Oti said: “I confirm there was an accident. A woman was killed and a young man sustained injury. There was no robbery. We are investigating a case of hit-and-run because the driver fled.”
A relative, Munir Adebayo Ajisebutu wrote a short tribute on Facebook saying: “Goodbye Niece as your life was cut short by one chance and aided by hit and run vehicle. May your gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Lord.
Adieu Oluwafeyidara Adewunmi Adekoya ( 4th February 1994 – 30th December 2017).”
