One Tolu Babatunde has reconnected to his mother, Kuburat Shola, who disappeared shortly after his birth in 1975.
Babatunde had sent a mail to the Linda Ikeji’s Blog seeking the public help to find his mother who he last saw in 1998.
According to Babatunde, back in 1988 when he met her for the second time, she came with her sister and her niece.
The same niece saw the post on LIB and reached out to him, making the connection with his mum possible.
An elated Babatunde responded to LIB after making the the connection with his mum:
”When she came in 1998, she came with her sister and her niece. It was her niece that recognised her picture when it was shared online, and she got in touch with me on my mobile number. Her niece then passed her number to me and we are in touch.
I am overjoyed and grateful to God for this reunion. My hearty thanks to LIB & the entire team as well as all who prayed and supported.” Babatunde mail announcing she had been found reads in part.
