PHOTOS: Tears As Lagos Lawmaker Olawale Is Buried


It was all tears as members and staff of the Lagos State House of Assembly led by the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, on Wednesday, received the body of Hon. Abdul-Sobu Olawale, who passed on in Jos, Plateau State, on Tuesday.

The remains of the lawmaker arrived at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in the afternoon and was immediately conveyed to his residence in a motorcade that involved Obasa, lawmakers, the Lagos State Legislators Wives Association, friends, family and associates of the deceased.

The body was later moved to the Ebony Vaults where Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat, joined the crowd of mourners.
