Pastor Bimbo Odukoya was a source of inspiration to so many people around the world. Her “Single & Married” ministry changed lives, helped heal and build relationships.
The nation mourned when the Sosoliso crash occurred on the 10th of December 10th 2005 resulting in the loss of so many promising young lives – wives, brothers, sisters, daughters, husbands, mothers lost their lives in the crash.
Families left devastated had to rebuild their lives while honoring the memory of their loves ones.
