Senator Adeola Adopts Murdered Aide’s Children

Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Ogun West) the chairman of Senate Committee on Appropriation has adopted the three children of his murdered aide, Mr.Adeniyi Oluwatosin Sanni.

Mr. Sanni was killed on August 5, 2023 after an encounter with security agents at a check-point in Ojodu-Berger area of Ikeja and his body dumped at Oshodi area.

Speaking through the Director-General of his campaign organization in Lagos at the funeral in RCCG RHEMA CHAPEL, Redemption Camp in Mowe, Barrister Babatunde Raji-Label said Senator Adeola had adopted Moraraoluwa, Oluwashindara and Oluwafeyidara Sanni as his children going forward, adding that the welfare of his aged mother and immediate family would be catered for on monthly basis.

“It impossible for me to find a replacement for Niyi. He is my blood and a dedicated aide of almost two decades. I am greatly grieved by his unwarranted death. As a father figure to him, I had to stay away from his funeral as tradition demands” he stated.

The Senator disclosed that a Trust fund he established with a donation and contributions from friends, associates and colleagues yielded N55 million in less than a week and the fund had been applied to pay for the children’s education in their present institution with adjustment for increases for the next six to 10 years of their education.

Senator Adeola thanked all those who commiserated with him and members of Mr. Sanni’s family with a prayer that God Almighty would grant all the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

The sermon for the funeral was given by Pastor Gbenga Odunowo of the Young Adult and Youth Church of RCCG RHEMA CHAPEL with the theme that only our good works while alive mattered, stressing that the testimonies about Mr. Sanni were a pointer to the good work he did while alive.

The RCCG pastor urged all to do good work while alive and accept Jesus Christ as saviour for the salvation of souls.

The funeral service was attended by associates of the Senator from Lagos and Ogun states, including Hon. Adekunle Adesina, Hon. Babatunde Olaotan, Pastor Kenny Jones, Mrs. Funmi Efuwape, Hon. Dr. Babatunde Adejare and a host of others.
