Fausat Balogun buried in Brazil

Wondering who Fausat Balogun is or was in this case? Well, she's the 72 year old woman who was arrested in Brazil for carrying drugs (See the story HERE)

Unfortunately she passed away on the 30th of October, 2012 due to a mild stroke caused by the high blood pressure which she'd been suffering from before arriving at the penitentiary. She died at the hospital for women inside the penitentiary in Brazil.

No family member came for her body so she was buried at the Vila Formosa Municipal Graveyard in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The trip to Brazil was actually her first time out of Nigeria, and some heartless people decided to use her as a drug courier without her knowledge. She died in that country and was buried there. Truly sad!

Walahai tulahi this is really pathetic...for a mother that has seen birth and death alternating and still attained the age of 72 to be lured to such madness by a woman and buried in a foreign land like an animal is not only sad but terrible...
Mama, may you find peace with your maker and may He reward whoever it is that lured you into this mess...

And they say igbos are covetous and heartless.I bet her kids did that to her

If you read the story of why and how she was arrested then you would agree that Brazil acted civil enough considering the fact that she was caught with drugs but allegedly she wasn't aware of the act she was helping in performing. And then her death is of natural cause too, the Nigerian government should be to blame for not being able to get the women released back home before her death and then after her death. May the old lady rest in the bossom of the lord, Amen!

Lin,my mum is 67.How can someone convince her to travel to Brazil, go thru immigration and visa processes and I and my family won't b aware? Kinship is very strong here in Naija. I conclude that her heartless and fearful family abandoned her and being a Mother, *for the wrong reasons* she refused to expose them.

you bet her kids did that to her...
Does the article not narrate the story? I don't know which is more appalling - the fact that you evidently either did not read the article before commenting, that you cannot understand the simple article or the fact that you linked this poor woman's story to your obsessive bigotry. I'm Igbo and my message to you is "please go and hug transformer" Meanwhile Linda according to you this woman has 2 last names...

Mama should not have entered into such business.Anyway may her soul rest in peace

this world, even at the age of 72.

memphis said...

1st, you don't have the facts about her drug trafficking, and so you cannot be a judge to know if she was innocent of it or not. the fact that she's 72 years doesn't give her any leave; 90 year old men and women have been known to traffick drugs.
2nd, may her soul rest in peace, and for those who are writing rubbish about the place in which she was buried, lighten up. She was buried, meaning that she was given final respects even as a prisoner. How many of you will do the same for those in detention in 9ja?

cb said...

she may be aware or not. But my annoyance is yoruba women too tear eyes, Rip mama. Yoruba women and travel travel. Pls WE should enlighten each other. My wife can fall into this kind of trap, all her eyes dey outside this country. I know she will read this. If any thing should happen to you (O.H.M.), I WILL NEVER SHOW UP.

Memphis, yes last rites are given to people who die in prison in Nigeria. Stop being ignorant and thinking Nigeria does not do things right. Linda, I tire for your readers. So much ignorance.

May God forgive you for your thoughts, cos I can imagine how putrid and vile they must be. What the heck is wrong with you? Must you be this offensive? How is her tribe relevant here? You need to free yourself from the shackles of your negative mentality, gosh I feel very sad for you, all that bile and excess baggage you lug around cannot be good for you. You need God's cleansing touch. Jeez.

RIP Mrs Fausat, may you find rest.

Be here asking Linda question, did Brazillian embassy deny you visa or are you barred from fact finding missions? You human beings, wonder how you will feel if someone was asking this question and your grandma was the victim.

Anon 1 and 2, both of you take stupid to new heights. Watch a few episodes of banged up abroad, I'm sure they will air one where the couriers didn't know they were carrying drugs.

Are you serious? May God forgive you and help cure your stupidity.

Really? You don't say. A woman was offered medical treatment abroad, probably by a fake ass NGO and tricked into carrying drugs. Is Jim Iyke not finacially okay at least? Wwhy did the older woman say her NGO paid for his parents medical trip abroad? Na wa 4 una. Try and be accessing at least 50% of your brains please.

WOW!!! what has tribe got to do with this? why is it that any story that features a nigerian that is shameful and tragic,then you see all these tibalistic foolish morons coming out in droves? i fail to use vital brain power to work out why! is it any wonder why nigeria is still the same way as it is? we like to bring our own people down way too much! hausa o,yoruba o,istekiri o ati bebe lo we are all one. we really need to stop this backward and barbaric attitude of tearing other tribes down

Kunle said...

Nobody came for her. So Nigeria don't have embassy in Brazil even though what she did is a shameful and wrongful acts. This govt really fall my hand. Other nations will not do that but do it in a coded and wise way. We already know you're irresponsible even to ur citizen here. Whateva you did has a meaning and the world is watching. As u dress, that's the way u'll be address. R.I.P mama...............want to have a flat belly, burn fat from ur entire or part of the body, maintain fitness and shape.

Kunle said...

Even if she die in prison or hospital whatever, her corpes shouldn't have been left there for burial. It's not right and i don't believe such a thing should be allowed as a rule. The Nigeria govt should have taken responsibility and bury her here even if her famly reject. Mr literate, you can teach us , we wanna learn the laws.

It is a shame we have a govt and an embassy in that country. I have been arrested in Amsterdam once and had some people around from other countries with different offenses, in the morning after our arrest and detention I was the only person who did not have a representative from an embassy to seek my release. No matter what this girl did our leaders should be ashamed that she was left to die like a fowl. We (Nigerians) are not the worst offenders in the world regarding any crime but our govt (if we have one) continue to demean us (ordinary citizens) by claiming that our vices are too embarrassing, more embarrassing than the billions $ they steal daily!
