Nike's Beautiful Restaurant - Pattaya Oriental, VI, Lagos

Adenike 38, suddenly collapsed at a meeting last saturday in London. Nike's Pattaya Thai Restaurant is a fantastic restaurant, the food, the deco, the ambience and customer service which were all a true testament to Adenike's hardwork and expertise. She was indeed a pride to women in business.

We are deeply saddened by her death and pray that God will grant her husband, children and family the fortitude to bear her loss. May her soul rest in perfect peace.

Funeral details to be updated soon.

We were looking forward to meeting you, only for us to receive the shocking news of your passage unto Higher Glory to be with the Lord. Our consolation rests in the knowledge that you are resting in the Father's bossom. Free from all the struggles and pains of this world.

Adieu Aunty Nike. We trust God will console the entire family.
