In a heart-wrenching turn of events, Toluige Olokoobi, the mother of Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, the young boy who gained fame through the viral "mummy be calming down" video, has taken her own life.

The incident, which occurred in Benin, raises questions about the reasons behind her decision. Despite the family's previous interactions with Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Oreofeoluwa expressing his ambition to become a police officer, the tragedy unfolded on Tuesday.

A witness at the scene reported that Toluige had kept her struggles to herself before the fatal act. Confirming the devastating news, the Edo state police spokesperson, Chidi Nwabuzor, stated that the husband reported the incident, leading to his detainment for further investigation. The entire community is left in shock and mourning over the unexpected loss.
