Ebunoluwa Balogun, a renowned social worker, is dead.

A statement by Oluyinka Olutoye, on behalf of the family, said Balogun died on June 24 in Houston, Texas, USA at the age of 81.

“She ensured that people enjoyed fair treatment in all ramifications of life and was unwavering in her commitment to positively influence lives in both her community and across the nation,” Olutoye said.

“Mrs Balogun was a social worker who dedicated her life to defending the marginalised and supporting anti-racism causes. She completed her formative education in Nigeria before progressing to Virginia Union University in Richmond, Virginia, USA to obtain her undergraduate degree.

“Her passion for social justice occasioned her enrolment at the University of Wisconsin, in Madison, Wisconsin, to earn her post-graduate degree in Social Work. The depth of her dedication to humanity is keenly felt in the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, and other schools across Nigeria where she impacted lives.

“During her lifetime, Mrs Balogun was as committed to humanity as she was to her religious beliefs. A devout member of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Ile-Ife, Mrs. Balogun was an active member of the church for over 45 years and was involved in a plethora of altruistic acts including active support for missionaries while being exemplary in radiating hospitality.”

According to the statement, Balogun is survived by her husband, Ekundayo Balogun, former director of the African Space Science Centre, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, her two daughters and grandchildren.

A funeral service for the deceased will be held on Monday, June 29, at 6pm.
