Oldest Ngerian in the UK who just died (PHOTO)

Nigeria's oldest citizen in the United Kingdom Pa Gabriel Lemoshe passed away on Friday January 31st less than two months short of his 100th birthday which was to be marked with a grand party by Nigerians in diaspora.

According to report, he took ill and was taken to the hospital where he unfortunately passed away days later.
Pa Lemoshe, a native of Abeokuta has been a resident of UK since 1941.
He was to clock 100-years on March 15 and they were already planning a big celebration in his honour.

Traditionally, the Queen of England writes a personal congratulatory letter to anyone who clocks 100 in the UK and Pa Lemoshe was on course to become the first Nigerian to receive such a letter but he was snatched away by death.
Organisers of his birthday now plan to hold a celebration of his life on march 15 instead of his birthday and family members will be coming from Nigeria to grace the occasion.
May his soul Rest in Peace!
