Emotions ran high on Thursday evening at the wake keeping and service of songs held in honour of Dapo Ojora, the polo-loving scion of the popular Otunba Adekunle Ojora family of Lagos.
Many family members and close polo-playing friends of the late Dapo were inconsolable. In attendance were his wife Patricia and his two sons.

Dapo died on Friday, December 11 in mysterious circumstances. The manner of his death was not too clear. Whereas some sources claimed he may have shot himself in the head, others said it was through an accidental discharge.
