The couple’s remains; Kehinde and Oluwabukunola Fatinoye who were killed by suspected arsonists in Abeokuta, Ogun State in the early hours of Sunday are devoted to Mother Earth.
The funeral service, led by SK Oyewale, was held at Christ Anglican Church in the Iporo-Ake area of the metropolis and was attended by relatives and sympathizers.
It is recalled that the couple were killed in the early hours of Sunday at their Ibara GRA residence in Abeokuta, after returning from a Crossover Church service. Their killers also set fire to their corpses and kidnapped their son and maid.
Kehinde Fatinoye was a former employee of the Central Bank of Nigeria and his wife was a former employee of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
The couple’s remains were taken in separate coffins to a cemetery in the Lantoro area of Abeokuta after the church service, where they were consecrated to Mother Earth.
State police image maker Abimbola Oyeyemi said the incident was a pure case of murder, confirming that “when the couple was killed, their remains were set on fire”.
“After the cowardly act, the couple’s son and their maid were kidnapped and thrown into a river. Although the maid has been rescued alive, we have yet to see the son.”
While confirming that one person has been arrested in connection with the incident, Oyeyemi assured that the police would make every effort to arrest those behind the cowardly act.
