Reverend Sister Who Sacrificed Her Life To Save Students In Abule-Ado Explosion Buried Amid Tears And Buhari’s Tribute To Her. The reverend sister who gave up her life for her students has been buried amid tears.

A selfless woman, Rev. Sister Henrietta Alokha who gave her life to save her students during the deadly Abule Ado fire inferno has been buried.
She was buried yesterday.
Recall that before her death, Henrietta Alokha was the principal of Bethlehem High School, Abule-Ado. She was involved in a petrol pipeline explosion in Abule-Ado, Amuwo Odofin Local Government area of Lagos State and died while saving her students.
Friends and family members couldn’t hold back tears.
However, President Buhari, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said the example of the Reverend Sister was commendable, particularly noting her contributions to the Education system.

“As remains of the Principal of Bethlehem High School, Abule-Ado, Lagos, Rev. Sis. Henrietta Alokha, is laid to rest, President Muhammadu Buhari joins staff members and students in mourning the huge loss to the school, and the country.

“The President believes Sis. Alokha’s choice to lay down her life for the students she loved deserves commendation, while taking into consideration her contributions to the educational development of the country through piety, diligence and charity.

“President Buhari salutes her courage and heroism, assuring that posterity will remember her sacrificial spirit, rescuing children kept under her care, and putting her own life on the line.

“The President prays that the almighty God will accept her soul, comfort her family, and all those she lived and died for.

“President Buhari, again, condoles with all those who lost their loved ones and property in the pipeline explosion, praying that God will strengthen them in the trying period”, the statement said.
