The church ceremony will hold at Saint David’s Cathedral, Ijomu in Akure, the state capital.

The Nation reports:

A statement on behalf of one of the in-laws and signed by Ikemefuna Akinjide Okafo, described the late Ondo State Commissioner as “an embodiment of humility, honesty and charming charisma”.

To the Okafors, members of the Falae family have lost a gem “and a leader of this generation who touched our lives in a way that only you could. We will never forget the smile and laughter you brought to our faces. Your work here is done and what a great job you did. Now rest in the arms of the one who sent you, and has called you back to his glory”.

The statement reads: “The entire Okafo family sympathises with our dear in-laws, the Falaes, on the loss of their son, husband, father and brother, Ayodeji Olaniran Falae.

“What more can be said about this great man that has not been said already, ever since your untimely death on October 3, 2013. I have read so many tributes and testimonies of the truly exceptional man my brother was. Your unique qualities – humility, honesty, and, of course, your charming charisma are unequalled.

“I remember the day yourself and brother Dapo stopped over in our house on your way to Akure and offered to give me a ride to Ife. Good thing I said yes. The two-hour journey seemed just like 10 minutes, as you and brother Dapo filled the car with laughter, now that day remains only a memory.

“This memory of your infectious laughter and warmth, joke after joke, I will never forget. You made everyone so comfortable and at ease in what ever situation and I’m sure as calm and enjoyable as heaven sounds, your presence would definitely be noticed.”
