All roads led to the residence of the Parroters Editor, Alhaji Mansur Aramide Oladunjoye, in Ota, Ogun State where well wishers, sympathizers, friends, family members and neighbours bid his wife, Atinuke Sadiq Oladunjoye a final farewell.
Atinuke, mother of two, (a boy and a girl) died on Thursday, February, 8, exactly two months after an accident that sent her to LUTH happened.
A reckless Okada rider, who rode against the traffic knocked her down on December 8 and she never survived the head injury sustained in the accident even after fortune had been down on her by the Editor and other members of the family.
The remains of Atinuke arrived her husband’s Ota residence around 9 pm into the waiting hands of Islamic scholars who were on hand to perform other Islamic rites like Janazat (funeral) prayer and final interment.
Women could not hold their tears as elders had hectic time consoling the wailing women who kept on extolling the virtues of the deceased.
After the interment, the Islamic Scholars took time to admonish the gathering on fear of God reminding that, ‘where Atinuke went, we are all going there sooner or later.”
Prayers were later offered to the community, the children and the husband left behind.
In an emotion laden voice, the widower Alhaji Oladunjoye thanked all sympathizers and prayed that such a calamity would not befall any of them.
