Mother of the late Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mrs Funmi Olayinka, yesterday, wept uncontrollably as she mourned her daughter, and repeatedly asked Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, the whereabouts of her daughter.
Fayemi, who paid a condolence visit to the parents of Mrs Olayinka at the Famuwagun family house, Oke Ori-Omi, where they live in Ado Ekiti, at 10am, alongside his wife, Bisi and other top government functionaries, could not hide his emotion when the 81-year-old Mrs. Adetutu Grace Famuagun kept asking “Kayode, where is Funmi?”
In a statement, Governor Fayemi said all his engagements, including the symposium organised for the youths at Ikogosi Ekiti are cancelled. Equally, the state has suspended all official ceremonies and opened condolence register in the office of the governor and the office of the deputy, including the state’s liaison office in Lagos and Abuja.
Governor Fayemi had declared a seven-day mourning during which all flags in the state will fly at half-mast.
