In his sermon, the Anglican Bishop of Akure Diocese, Bishop Simion Borokini, said all human are destined to die after which comes the day of judgement.
“It has been destined of every man created by God, to die one day, which after that there shall be judgement.
“No matter your position on earth, no matter your influence, man or woman, you going to be like this our sister one day, either Muslim or christian, man or woman, tall or short, fat or otherwise. To the earth we shall all return,” he said.
He brought his teachings from the book of Hebrew Chapter 4: 8-9 and urged everyone to be good to fellow human being since we don’t know when death may come visiting.

At the burial ground, the younger brother to the deceased, Tokunbo Fasoranti, said she would be missed greatly for her love and spirit of oneness she displaced in the family.
Olufunke, 58, left behind two daughters and her husband.
She was shot dead by unknown gunmen along Ore-Lagos expressway two weeks ago on her way to Lagos from Akure.
