Photo: Fayemi, Others Weep As Olayinka’s Mother Demand Whereabouts Of Late Daughter

The aged mother of the late Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mrs Funmi Olayinka, on Sunday wept profusely as she received Governor Kayode Fayemi and his wife, Bisi.

Fayemi, alongside his wife and other top government officials on a condolence visit, arrived at the Famuwagun’s family house of the parents of departed Olayinka in Oke Ori-Omi, Ado Ekiti, at about 10am.

Emotions ran high as the governor could not hold back tears when the 81-year old grieving mother, Mrs. Adetutu Grace Famuagun, repeatedly asked “Kayode, where is Funmi?
The octogenarian’s insistence on seeing her daughter produced more tears as the guests and all others in attendance wept uncontrollably.


Meanwhile, Governor Fayemi has cancelled all his engagements, including the symposium organised for the youths at Ikogosi Ekiti.

In a statement released yesterday, he also suspended all official ceremonies.

A condolence register is now open at the office of the governor, office of the deputy, the state liaison offices in Lagos and Abuja.

In addition, the state government has declared a seven-day mourning during which all flags in the state will fly at half mast.

Already, commiseration has been pouring in from publc office holders and other prominent Nigerians.

The President, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, leadership and members of the National Assembly, state governors, opposition leaders and other eminent personalities have continued to pay glowing tributes to the deceased.

Mrs. Olayinka, 52 and mother of three, died in a Lagos hospital on Saturday after a long battle with cancer.

  11. really heartbreaking especially when the mother is still alive,no matter how long the mother is alive for the death of her daughter will be an ever sore wound that ll never recover..trust Nigerian politicians like vultures to take advantage of the dead the woman is still warm in the morgue and those who barely knew her are already falling over each other to issue glowing tributes

  13. As painful, unexpected and untimely as the death of Mrs. Funmilayo Olayinka is, I'm consoled that she had time to make amends with her Maker and Creator. At least, her death wasn't sudden.. For this alone, I give thanks to God for her life. Most people don't have a second chance.

  14. I don't live in Nigeria but my Mum always mentioned you several times, "my friend, the deputy governor". She was so proud of you! I didn't even know your name or what state. I read the news and moved on with my day only to call home to hear my mum in deep mourning and on her way to the airport to go pay her condolences! RIP Ma! People that knew you from as far back as Olivet, all say wonderful things about you. You accomplished so much in your short life and I am sure the ones you left behind are super-proud of you. My heartfelt condolences to your loved ones, especially your husband and kids.
