She died Tuesday afternoon at a private hospital in Abuja after a brief illness.
Her immediate younger brother, Bakam Adams Junior, confirmed the incident to our correspondent in a telephone interview.
He said she died of a brief illness at a private hospital in Abuja.
Junior said, “Yes, the news is true. She was admitted last Friday. She died today (Tuesday) after a brief illness at about noon at a private hospital in Abuja.
He said the death of Bakam had created a very big vacuum in the family.
“Rach, as we fondly called her, was a very likeable person, selfless, hardworking and God-fearing. She was very sacrificial. Her death has devastated us. I am yet to come to terms with it. I cannot tell you much,” he said.
She left behind to mourn her are a son, mother, three brothers and many relations.
