Aare Arisekola-Alao buried amid tears [PHOTOS]
The remains of the late Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland, Alhaji Chief Abdul-Azeez Arisekola-Alao have been laid to rest at his Oluwokekere, Bashorun, Ibadan residence.
Eminent personalities, including former Lagos State Governor, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Chief Bode George, ace musician, King Sunny Ade and others were all present to pay their last respect to the late billionaire businessman/philanthropist.
President Goodluck Jonathan was represented by the Minister of Police Affairs, Mr. Abdul-Jeleel Adesiyan, the Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro and the Chairman of Federal Road Maintenance Agency, Mr. Jide Adeniji.
In his sermon, the National Missioner of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Sheikh Abdur-Rahman Ahmad said, “There are so many rich people in Nigeria, and particularly in Oyo State, but not all of them have the philanthropic spirit as Alhaji Arisekola. He was generous to a fault and he lived a purposeful life.”
Arisekola-Alao died in London on Wednesday, few hours before he was due to return to Nigeria.
