“I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of the beautiful Rachael Bakam who was a regular guest at my Abuja home with my brother John Fashanu. She was a dear friend, a kind-hearted, compassionate & wonderful soul & a highly talented television presenter & personality,” he wrote.
“She was also a great source of pride to her native Kaduna state and to Nigeria and she brought smiles to the faces of millions all over the country with her weekly programme on AIT. I and many others shall miss her.
“May her beautiful soul rest in peace and may God grant her loved ones, her siblings and her son the strength and fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
