The matriarch of the Awolowo family, Chief (Mrs) Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo, is dead.

HID, as she was fondly called, reportedly died shortly after a meeting with her family members held earlier today to plan the programme for the marking of her 100th birthday.

Born on November 25, 1915, HID was the wife of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awololowo, one-time Premier of the defunct Western Region.
