M.I.C boss, Tunji Okusanya, who lost his life in the ill-fated Associated Airlines plane crash, has been laid to rest.
The burial rites commenced with a penitential service at St. Johns Anglican Church, Aroloya which was presided over by the Anglican diocesan bishop of Lagos, Most Revd. Dr E.A. Ademowo and other clergies in attendance.
Okusanya’s corpse was carried by pallbearers in traditional attires- Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa which depicts his style of job. ‘Uncle Tunji was always dressed in traditional attires to suit different tribes whenever he was on duty’, the late Okusanya’s niece explained. The pallbearers were led by the MIC boss’ daughter. His body was finally taken to the cemetery where he was buried.
Tunji Okusanya died on Thursday, October 3, 2013 following the Lagos plane crash that claimed the lives of about 14 people including Okusanya, his son and four members of his staff.
The 60-year-old is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren, siblings, nephews, nieces, aunties, uncles and cousins.
