Four months after, the remains of late legal luminary, Chief Richard Akinjide, have been interned inside his Ibadan home.
His son, Abayomi Akinjide, who made this known in a statement made available to OYOINSIGHT.COM said the private burial was necessitated by the prevailing coronavirus pandemic.
Private Interment of our Patriarch, Chief Richard Osuolale Abimbola Akinjide SAN, CON.
Our beloved Patriarch, Chief Richard Osuolale Abimbola Akinjide SAN, CON, who passed on peacefully to glory on 21st April, 2020, was laid to rest on Thursday, 13th August 2020 after a private funeral service by the family at The Chapel of St. Peter, The Rock, Jericho, Ibadan, within the family estate.
