Bukola Saraki, ex-senate president, and Toyin, his wife, are among the prominent personalities and family members who attended the wake and service of songs of Dapo Ojora, a Lagos socialite who recently died.
Dapo, who was aged 58, had breathed his last on December 11 after a gunshot wound he was reported to have inflicted on himself.
There were however conflicting accounts as to whether his death was a case of accidental discharge amid insinuations that the socialite committed suicide.
On Thursday, the family held a service of songs for the deceased ahead of his burial, which is to hold on Friday.
The event held at Main Field, Lagos Polo Club along Ribadu Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Also in attendance were Paul Adefarasin, a pastor at the House on the Rock church; and Patricia Ojora, Dapo’s ex-wife.
According to the family, Dapo’s funeral is scheduled to follow at The Cathedral Church of Christ in Marina at 11 am.
