I went to Abeokuta for TAMPPAN national meeting. I left Abeokuta around past 11am the following day. I got to a place they call Kobape. I was about climbing a bump when I noticed that the car brake was faulty. When I couldn’t find a solution to it, I had to look for where to hit, so I ran into the bush. That was all I could remember. I woke up in the hospital.
Henrietta Kosoko was well known in the mid 90’s after starring in a series of successful Yoruba movies. Her most famous movie is perhaps ‘Omolade‘ which was a blockbuster hit released in 1995. She also starred in a few English movies also.
May her soul rest in peace…
