“The prayers are meant for the dead and it is mandatory in Islam. So we are going to have the whole family at the venue.

“Though his younger brother, Obafemi, wanted to come for the burial and the prayers, we advised him to remain in Europe as there are people on ground to take care of things in his absence,” he said.
