Bishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina blasts Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and her siblings for refusing to attend their father’s burial rite in Ikorodu on January 17, 2020.
According to reports, Their Father, Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, was buried on Friday after he died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, aged 73, but his children were conspicuously absent at his Service of Songs.
During the Burial Sermon, Rev. Osundina thanked the children for taking care of their father during the times when he was ill, but stressed the fact that paying him the last respect as children was very important and significant.
He enjoined them to retrace their steps by making amends wherever necessary. He then suspended the usual outing and thanksgiving service which are final programs in Christian burial, till the deceased’s children are available to attend.
