According to Varacity news on Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari expressed his condolences to renowned musician, singer, and songwriter Bongos Ikwue over the death of his wife, Josephine Ifeyinwa, 73, along with other members of the entertainment community, notably artists and musicians.

In a letter of sympathy delivered by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, to the family, friends, Catholic Women Organization, International Association of Lions Clubs, and colleagues of the matriarch of the Bongos-Ikwue family in Abuja, Buhari expressed his condolences.

The dead was a member of the Ijeh Royal family from Issele-Uku Town in Delta, but by some stroke of luck, she spent the majority of her life with the musician from Benue.

Buhari praised the late man's commitment to serving others and the church.

Additionally, he praised her for helping the poor and needy around the nation, particularly prisoners, whom she often visited to pray with, offer guidance on the fear of God, and encourage those who were in custody while they were being tried as well as their families.

The president reaffirmed that her contributions to her family's stability, sense of civic responsibility, and devotion to God would always be recognized.

Buhari asked the Almighty God to comfort the well-known artist and his family and give the mother and wife a pleasant night's sleep.
