Beautiful Doyin Sarah Fagbenro, 25 was killed in a hit and run accident in Lagos. Her funeral was held at All Nations Church in Bedford on Saturday, January 23. Mourners wore red, her favourite colour. Her heartbroken mother Dupe, a hospital pharmacist, told the Standard:
â€œShe was beautiful, intelligent, adventurous and caring. She was absolutely everything to us. She had a very bright future but it has ended in this tragedy.â€
The straight-A student, the eldest of four siblings, grew up in Canning Town and graduated in law from Queen Maryâ€™s University in east London in 2013.
In a moving tribute written by her family she was described as having an â€œadventurous nature and fierce independenceâ€
â€œHer relentless determination was an inspiration to so many, yet never deterred from her playfulness and love for life; she loved to laugh, party and smile.â€
â€œEven through her most testing times she never lost her sense of humour and could always be trusted to lift the spirits of those around her.â€
