Former President Olusegun Obasanjo determined to keep Covid19 at bay shut out mourners outside during the funeral ceremony of his mother- in- law Mrs. Florence Mopelola Adenekan in Isara Remo, Ogun East Senatorial District.
The move was in compliance with the Covid19 rules on social distancing and the minimum number of persons permissible in any gathering.
The funeral ceremony took place at the St. Peter’s Anglican Church (Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion) Diocese of Remo, Isara Remo, Ogun State
At the ceremony Obasanjo manned the church’s enhance door and ensured that the approved limit of those to be allowed in was strictly adhered to.
He ordered many of the mourners who wanted to be part of the funeral service to go back and personally shut the Church doors against them as the service presided over by the Archbishop of Lagos Ecclesiastical Province of Lagos and Bishop of Remo Diocese, Most Rev Dr. Matthew Olusina Fape, commenced at about 10.30 am.
Some of the elder statesman’s close aides and associates were not spared – they too were also locked outside despite having their face masks on.
The late Mrs. Adenekan was the mother of Chief (Mrs) Bola Obasanjo. She died on April 17, 2020; two days before her 90th birthday.
