Mum says tragic farewell to daughter Damilola Olakanmi who died after ‘eating cannabis sweet‘
The heartbroken mother of a law student who died after eating what she mistook for a Cannabis Sweet stayed by her bedside until her daughter passed away.
Damilola Olakanmi purchased the “gummies” through a messaging app and had them delivered to her home in Ilford, London, where she became ill shortly after eating them on Tuesday night.
According to detectives, the 23-year-old and her 21-year-old friend both felt sick after eating just one of the Cannabis Sweet.
After the two women became ill, police and paramedics were dispatched, and both women were taken to a nearby hospital, but Damilola tragically died on Saturday.
Wumi, Damilola’s 51-year-old mother, kept a vigil by her daughter’s bedside until she tragically passed away, as shown in a heartbreaking photo.
Richard Taylor, 75, a justice campaigner and a relative, consoled the law student’s distraught mother on Sunday.
The “gummies” ( Cannabis Sweet) were purchased through a messaging app by Damilola Olakanmi.
According to the Evening Standard, he said: “Wumi’s only child has died, and she now has nothing. They had to support her because she would cry whenever a friend came to the house to offer support.
“It’s a tragic warning to all young people about their choices in life. They should be able to resist drugs.
“Damilola Olakanmi was a promising young woman who should be looking forward to her future and having children of her own.”
Damilola Olakanmi was a sweet, quiet, and very kind girl, according to Dunni, a relative, who told the Evening Standard that her mother looked up to her.
She stated that the family will never be able to accept the death and that they need to know what happened.
