The mother of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, is dead.

She died on Tuesday.

Funke’s older sister, Olubunmi Akindele, announced their mother’s death in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement read, β€œIt is with heavy hearts, but in total submission to God Almighty, that the ADEBANJO and AKINDELE families announce the passing of their daughter, mother, grandmother and sister, DR. R B ADEBANJO-Akindele, which occurred on Tuesday 07 February 2023.

May her gentle soul begin its rest eternal in peace. Amen. Obsequies in honour of her passing shall be announced in due course.”

the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has sympathised with the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Akindele, over the death of her mother.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, on Tuesday, said it is difficult to find the right words to condole someone who lost a beloved person, noting that losing mothers is one of the deepest sorrows for man.
The governor prayed for peace, comfort, courage and love for Funke, his immediate siblings, and the Adebanjo and Akindele families as they mourn the deceased.

He said, β€œMy heart goes out to Funke, friends of the Adebanjo and Akindele families on the demise of their daughter, mother and grandmother, Dr RB Adebanjo-Akindele who answered the ultimate call today, Tuesday, February 7, 2023.

β€œDeath of loved ones, whenever it happens, is usually a very painful episode but we must be consoled by the good life lived by the deceased person. We should relish in the beautiful memories the dead left behind for us.
The governor urged the PDP deputy governorship candidate to be comforted by the good life that her late mother lived and continue to pray for the repose of the deceased.

β€œOn behalf of my family and the good people of Lagos State, I hereby express my heartfelt condolences to the entire families and friends of Adebanjo and Akindele.

β€œMay God grant the soul of the departed eternal rest and the families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he added.
