Nigeria’s ex-beauty queen and wife of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo of The Trinity Church, is dead.
According to reports, Ighodalo died of cardiac arrest on Sunday morning.
The death of the former miss Lux was reportedly confirmed by a family friend who said her demise had left family and close friends devastated.
She successfully ran her events company, Elizabeth R, as well as her foundation, Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation, during her lifetime.
Forty year-old Ighodalo who got married to pastor Ituah in 2007 had tried 11 times to have a child through IVF before finally deciding to adopt her twins, Keke and Zenan.
Ibidun is one of those celebrities who enjoyed the klieg lights right from her teenage years.
As Miss Lux, the then 18-year-old Ibidun Ajayi, an undergraduate of the University of Lagos, graced fashion pages as the queen, who emerged without wearing a bikini.
She said she met Pastor Ituah outside an event venue.
“I wanted to pick something inside the hall when I bumped into a man. ‘Oh, sorry,’ I said and went inside but something in my spirit told me that he was my husband.
“I didn’t believe the voice because that was the last thing on my mind. Later, we became friends, and I saw in him, a father and a confidant.”
