The lady’s mother, Wumi, a Christian, was beside her daughter day and night until she died on Saturday, April 2, Independent reports.

She was her mother's only child

Damilola’s friend survived and was discharged. In speaking about what Wunmi went through, Justice Campaigner Richard Taylor said the woman was always breaking down every time people came to console her for losing her only child.

A 37-year-old man, Leon Brown, was arrested in connection with Damilola’s death and charged with the intent to supply what has been described as a Class B synthetic cannabinoid.

Police officers have since advised the public against the consumption of the sweets. The force said the death of another woman in March may be linked to the cannabis sweets.
