In an emotional video that was posted on Twitter by Laolu Akande, the senior special assistant on media and publicity to the vice president, Dolapo could be seen consoling Olufade’s widow as the atmosphere was filled with mourning.

Reacting to the video, a tweep with the handle @Uzochi_O said:

“How do you people share videos of people grieving just because you want to show the VP’s wife is compassionate? How insensitive can you people be? Mr. Akande as a well enlightened man, does this feel right to you?”

@AbdulKadiirrrr commented:

“They can sign condolence register, snap far shots to show she visited. They must not show us her vulnerable state.”

“This breaks my heart! At that moment you want the world to end! I know exactly how she’s feeling.”

Photos of newlywed flight lieutenant killed in Kaduna crash go viral, he got married in February

Legit.ng previously reported that a young Nigerian lady, Bunmi Oladuntoye, penned a very emotional note about her fiancé, Olufemi Taiwo Asaniyi, who was among those that lost their lives in the plane crash of Friday, May 21.

Taking to Twitter, Bunmi relived the moment Femi asked for her hands in marriage in 2020 and how she joyfully said yes to his proposal.

She revealed that some of the last things the man taught her were humility and the power inherent in giving.

In a subsequent tweet, she rhetorically asked who will call her a fine girl like he always did now that he is no more.
