The shocking death of Ibidunni Ighodalo, celebrity event planner and wife of Lagos-based pastor, Ituah Ighodalo of Trinity House fame has left her family and friends in mourning.
Celebrities immediately took to social media after learning that the 39-year-old dormer Miss Lux breathed her last in the early of Sunday morning in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
“My Original LUX! LUX1!!!!! What s this? When I read people write in bereavement – ‘This was not the plan’, it made no sense until today; this was not the plan. Rest In Peace.” wrote Ifeoma Williams, a former Miss Lux beauty queen in a photo caption on her Instagram page.

The outpouring continued with more celebrities from all walks of life. Dangote Group’s Maijidda Modibbo posted a heartfelt message “Thank you for being nothing but pure love! Adios, Ibidun!”
Abuja celebrity woman, Elizabeth Jack-Rich wrote, “The earth lost an amazing soul, beauty personified, a selfless humanitarian. I only met you once in my life back in 2017 at the Dulles International Airport, USA, waiting to go through immigration. I was carrying my first daughter who was just few months old and carrying about two bags and my hand bags as I travel alone.
The CEO of Elin Group continued “Such a great mother instinct you have, you approached me knowing the discomfort my child and I were going through due to such loads on me and you said…Pls can I help you carry your bags and also take my place in line as you were ahead of us in line, I looked at you and smiled refusing but you insisted saying don’t worry I won’t harm you and your baby by thrusting anything into your luggage and I immediately gave you my luggages to help me out, we passed through the immigration and you were stopped due to the baby foods in one of the bags and the moment you were asked who owns this bag without even knowing the content your reply was it’s my sister’s and I had to step forward to clear my bags.
She further wrote, “After all this thorough pass, I proceeded to ask who you are and what your name is, and you said my name is Ibidun Ighodalo and I am your sister. I smiled, thank you and departed without we exchanging contacts. Few months ago you reached out on social media and I was elated that we started making plans to work together to touch humanity. Ha! Aunty Ibidun, i don’t know you so well but the much I know about you during our very first encounter would live in my heart. God loves more that is why he has called you home. You are such an angel. May God forgive all your shortcomings. Rest In Peace.”
