The Bishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina, recently expressed his disappointment in Nollywood actress Funke Akindele Bello and her siblings over their absence at their father’s funeral.
It was gathered that their dad, Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, who died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, after a brief illness, aged 73 was shunned by Funke and siblings.
None of his four children was present at his Service of Songs and burial at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, Lagos.
While delivering 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 programes in Christian’s burial, till the deceased’s children are available to attend.
Some Nigerians also didn’t waste time to lampoon Funke Akindele for neglecting her father’s burial.
Meanwhile, Funke Akindele and her friends are enjoying life in Dubai at the moment.
