Tears as Tosin Ogunbodede laid to rest

By Adekola Afolabi


Tears flowed freely as the remains of the late Chief of Protocol to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Olutomisin Ogunbodede, Esq, were on Friday committed to mother earth in his Owo country home.
Members of his immediate family, members of the State Executive Council led by the state Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, other political and professional associates attended the burial ceremony.
The people wore black attires at the funeral service held at the Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew’s Anglican Communion, Imola, Owo, to bid the late CoP farewell.
Amidst tears and wailings, members of his immediate family, friends and associates later moved to the church cemetery where the remains of the late CoP were laid to rest.
The people betrayed emotion as they cried uncontrollably to bid the late CoP farewell.
Earlier in his sermon entitled, “We are not in control”, the Owo Diocesan Bishop of Anglican Diocese, Right Reverend Stephen Fagbemi explained that the interference of death in the affairs of man on earth clearly showed that we are not in control.
He described death as shameless which could take anybody away at any time through any means and at any place without remedy.
The Bishop who described the death of the late CoP as too painful to bear, also appealed to government and friends to sustain his legacy so that his legacy would not end when he is no more.
While commiserating with the state Governor, the government, the members of the immediate family and associates over the untimely death of the CoP, the Bishop noted that nothing never happened without the knowledge of God.
According to Bishop Fagbemi, it is only God that knows when the hour will come, hence the living should always prepare for their last day.
He admonished people to reconcile with anybody and not leave any unsettled quarrel so that it would not hinder their eternity.
He equally encouraged Governor Akeredolu to continue to provide security for the people of the state and save the people from activities of herdsmen.
Born in 1964, late Ogunbodede, a lawyer by profession died at the age of 56 years and left his wife, Olufunke and four children behind.
In a letter of condolence, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu described his late CoP as a dedicated, dependable and humble ally.
Wife of the deceased, Olufunke and his eldest son, Ayomide Ogunbodede described the late CoP as a loving husband and caring father, just as they described his untimely death as too painful to bear.
