The deceased, Olatunde Filani was said to have died after a brief illness. Kemi Filani reports that the deceased who was born in 1946, recently retired as a lecturer from the College of Education, Ikere Ekiti. The retired lecturer who worked for several years was a native of Ikole Ekiti and was said to have been instrumental in the training of several students who are today doing well either in the teaching profession or in other areas of human endeavor.
However when the husband of the actress, Mosun Filani, Barrister Kayode Oduoye, reacted to the sad news, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP candidate for the House of Representatives for Ifelodun/Boripe/Odo Otin Federal Constituency in Osun state said:
“It was really painful when I received the news; having become a member of the family, I share with them this moment of grief and I beseech the Almighty God to grant our father eternal rest. May God also grant the family the fortitude to bear the great loss.
“We indeed mourn the death of our father and I would surely miss him for his words of wisdom, guidance and fatherly love but we take solace in the fact that he lived an eventful life that is worthy of emulation”, he said.
Although the bereaved family has not official announced the death of the late lecturer, it was made known that members of the immediate family are still shocked.
It would be recalled that just recently, Mosun Filani and her husband welcomed a baby boy as their second child. The couple was already blessed with a girl in November, 2012 in Lagos on May 23, 2014.
