The Bishop Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina has condemned actress Funke Akindele for being absent at her father’s burial ceremony.
Funke’s father was laid to rest in Ikorodu in the 17th of January, 2020.
Funke Akindele-Bello of the “Jenifa’s Diary” fame had taken to her Instagram page on December 9, 2019, to announce the demise of her father, Revd Godwin Akindele.
The Reverend father made his displeasure known as he also called out the actress’s siblings who were also absent.
Their dad, Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, after a brief illness, aged 73.
However, 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 told them to do what was right and fix their lives and refused to go ahead with the rest of the ceremony till they were present.
