We lost a rare gem Sunday 12th October in Ireland Nigerian community. 15 year old Hassan. A very dear, loving and peaceful son, brother and friend. He collapsed on the field after scoring a goal during a friendly match; later died at University Hospital Galway.
|Hassan (R-L, 2nd)|
His elder brother Akeem Taiwo on behalf of the family announced burial arrangement through his Facebook page in what he tagged #Walk with Hassan...Gone but never forgotten, as follows:
In the name of God; the entirely merciful, the especially merciful, to whom all praise is due, the Lord of the worlds and architect of all things, good and bad. In You we seek refuge from satan the accursed and onto whom we rely for comfort and solace.
The family and immediate friends of our martyr, our son, our brother and our hero; Hassan David Adekunle Asamu Taiwo, will like to inform everyone who would love to pay their last respects to the 'happy kid' to please be aware of the following and do help pass it on ...
