Diekolola Olatanwa Osa-Avielele, daughter of ex-Kwara Governor, Chief Cornelius Adebayo died from childbirth complications after 10 years of trusting, conceiving, and finally having her own child.

Her sister had shared the sad news via her Instagram page days after her death.
She wrote: A star has fallen
2 days ago our world came crashing down as an angel left the earth. My sister Deki passed on and left us in great distress. There are five of us girls and my brother, my second sister left our close-knit team of six leaving an unmendable crack.
Thanks to everyone that has tried to reach us, we’re sorry for being unreachable cause as you can imagine we’re still trying to wrap our heads around what just happened.
Please celebrate with me my beautiful sister Diekolola Olatanwa, Olaotan, Oluwatoyin Osa Avielele who just took her final bow from this world.
I don’t know how I can bare this, but I know it is well
