Oloyin cautioned parents to desist from cursing or using abusive words on their wards, noting that if they were properly brought up by the words of Allah, there would be no problem.

“I want to use this opportunity to urge our society to bring up our children and cultivate in them the fear of Allah, once they get this right, it would be difficult for them to misbehave”.

He urged the deceased’s children to take solace in the reality that the deceased lived a worthy life , advising that they should ensure that they remain united, adding that they should further strengthen their unity in appreciation of the tireless efforts of their mother.

The Fidau prayer was led by the Chief Imam of Okekere Mosque, Alhaji Abdulrafiu Alaro, supported by other Imams and clerics; special prayer was offered for the deceased with recitation of some selected verses of the Qur’an, stressing the inevitability of death.

Imam Okekere emphasized on unity and harmonious relationship among the children of the deceased and the family at large, saying this is the time for every family members to building on the deceased’s attitudes.
