The father of the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola, Alhaji Ademola Fashola has passed on. The elder Fashola passed on in the early hours of Monday after a brief illness.
Late Pa Fashola was a great grandson of the late philanthropist, Bello Fashola who was a close friend of Oba Esugbayi, who ruled as the Oba of Lagos back then. The deceased’s great grandfather was instrumental to his return to Lagos in 1932 after the Eleko was banished by colonial authorities around 1925.
Governor Fashola who was away on lesser hajj when the incident happened was already airborne at the time of filing this report.
