Description . NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:JUN 1967 Ð The Last Salute To A Soldier Of Honour Ð Pa Isaiah Fajuyi (94) say his son Francis Adekunle Fajuyi, was so considerate. Pa Isaiah Fajuyi added his testimony: ÒAs you know, I am nearly 95 years old and I never like to miss my attendance at the church. A few weeks before his death, Adekunle came home and noticed that I usually walked the two miles from my house to the church every morning. He was very disturbed about this and he told me to send his immediate brother, Sunday, to him when he finished his tour and he would send me a small second-hand car. Two weeks, later, I sent Sunday to him. When Sunday arrived in Ibadan the conference of obas and emirs was just beginning and Adekunle asked his brother to wait until the meeting was over. That boy was there when he was killed. I never got the car. I never saw him again.Ó (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
