Godwin Olusoji Akindele's Burial: Funke Akindele Absent At Father's Funeral by babecode: 9:30am On Jan 19
Funke Akindele, Siblings Absent At Father’s Burial In Ikorodu

Absence of popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, popularly called ‘Jennifer’ by her teeming fans, and her siblings at their father’s burial in Ikorodu on Friday, January 17, 2020, has drawn the anger of the Presiding Bishop, The Rt. Rev. S.O Osundina, JP, the Bishop of Diocese of Ikorodu, Methodist Church Nigeria.

Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, aged 72, died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, after a brief illness.

He was buried on Friday at his Ibeshe home in Igbogbo/Bayeku Local Council Development Area.

Family members, friends, serving and retired Principals, members of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Ikorodu chapter and former students of late Revd. Akindele, attended the burial service held at the Patriarch Bolaji Methodist Cathedral, Ita Elewa, Ikorodu.

Bishop Osundina, while delivering the burial sermon, commended the former Principal and Priest for a life well-spent.

He asked late Revd. Akindele’s siblings present at the burial service why his children were not in attendance.

He then suspended the usual outing and thanksgiving services which are final programes in Christian’s burial till when the deceased’s children are available to attend.

A source in the Church who told THE IMPACT that all the deceased’s children were also absent at the Service of Songs on Thursday, added that the children have since relocated abroad, including Funke Akindele who, according to her, is presently in Dubai.

Late Revd. Akindele was born into the family of Pastor Richard Obabunmi Akindele of Fasenro family, Oshorun village in Igbogbo, Igbogbo/Bayeku Local Council Development Area and Deaconess Alice Idowu Omolaja of Odofin family in Ikorodu Local Government.

He started his working career as a Clerk with Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Ijora, and later proceeded to the College of Education (Technical), Akoka, Yaba. He went abroad on scholarship to study Vocational, Technical and Adult Education in University of Wisconsin and later obtained Master’s Degree in Education Administration at the same University.

He was the Vice Principal of the Lagos State Model College, Igbokuta and later Principal of Keme Balogun College, Ibeshe, Wasimi Community Grammar School, Ikeja and United Senior High School, Ikorodu, where he retired in 2008.

Late Revd. Akindele was ordained a priest of Methodist Church Nigeria in 2006 and was elevated to the position of a Presbyter in November 2017.

He was survived by three daughters – Bunmi, Funke and Bimbo and a son, Akin.

Attempt to reach Funke Akindele for her comment on the Bishop’s reaction proved abortive.

The Bishop Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina, on Friday, January 17, 2020, expressed his disappointment in Nollywood actress Funke Akindele Bello and her siblings over their absence at their father's funeral.

Their dad, Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, after a brief illness, aged 73. However, none of his four children was present at his Service of Songs and burial at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, Lagos.

While delivering the burial sermon, Rev. Osundina thanked the children for taking care of their father during the times when he was ill, but stressed the fact that paying him the last respect as children was very important and significant. .

All 4 of them? How busy can they claim to be? They don't seem to realize that they'll never get to see him EVER again. What a shame!

Ask their mother if she's available, if not, ask the absentee 4 what she told them about their father. I have heard of a woman who turned all her 7 children against their father, by telling them he wanted to use them for money ritual but she refused and left him. The man reverted to bachelorhood and even in his old age the children, then grown ups, never saw reason to have anything to do with their dad. Sometimes it may not be the mother who's the culprit, but a babalawo or a useless "man of god".

The children in question are adults they may have thier reasons , whether acceptable or not ...
BTW men should learn to care for thier children , gone are those days when you let your wife suffer to take care of the kids , and you tell yourself , that the children would come to look for you in the future after they are accomplished . Any body tries that with a child like me , you'll be finished , i totally would have nothing to do with you even if you come back yourself to beg ...take care of your kids , cos if you don't , there's always a repercussion you wouldn't like or expect ..
I'm not saying that's what happened in funke's case , I'm just putting this out !

Let me guess: An acclaimed 'Herbalist' with the licence of a 'Man of God', must have told them not to set foot at the burial ground for spiritual reasons.

None of us knows the true story.
All his offsprings failed to show up, I think that speaks more about him than about them!

I'm sure there's a reason.

For example, if a father sexually abused his daughters, they may not go for his funeral.

I'm not saying he did that though. Just an example.

That's one of the reasons why a man should always behave like a man by having more than a wife. My own opinion tho
