The re­mains of le­gal icon and a Se­nior Ad­vo­cate of Nigeria, Chief God­win Oluse­gun Ko­la­wole, aka G.O.K. Ajayi, who died on Satur­day April 29, 2014 will be buried on May 29 in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

Fam­ily sources told Daily Trust that the burial was fixed on that day to co­in­cide with the 83rd birth­day of the late le­gal lu­mi­nary.

“Be­fore late Chief Ajayi died, he left di­rec­tives on how he wanted to be buried with his el­dest daugh­ter, Tola, who flew into the coun­try from Canada fol­low­ing the death of her fa­ther,” the source said.

The source, who does not want his name in print, said it is not clear whether the late lawyer would be buried at the Angli­can Com­mu­nion Church ceme­tery or his per­sonal house in the Govern­ment Reser­va­tion Area, GRA, Ijebu Ode.

Speak­ing on be­half of the fam­ily, Prophet Ke­hinde Okun­eye said the fam­ily was al­ready meet­ing and mak­ing ar­range­ments on how to give the late le­gal icon a be­fit­ting burial.
