In a condolence message signed by Olawale Alabi, the Association’s Secretary-General, SWAN said it was pained by the news of Briskila’s demise.
“Her death, which occurred after a brief illness, has no doubt left behind a vacuum which will be difficult to fill.
“We can only pray Almighty God in His Infinite Mercy to grant you the fortitude to bear the loss’’
SWAN also prayed that God should avert any more of such deaths, and keep safe those whom she has left behind.
“On behalf of SWAN members nationwide, please accept our condolences as we pray God to strengthen you and the rest of your family at this time of grief.’’
