family of revolutionary lawyer and activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi has stated that the first son of the late lawyer, Mohammed Fawehinmi died of COVID-19 complications.
This was made known in a press conference organised by the family at their Lagos home on Thursday, August 26, 2021.
The family said they could not immediately disclose the cause of death because they wanted the information to be based on factual medical details as contained in his death certificate.
While urging Nigerians to take necessary precautions to avoid being infected by the deadly disease, they called on the government to step up public enlightenment on the deadly character of the disease so that many more Nigerians, especially those whose immune system could easily be compromised because of underlying illness can take safety measures.
According to the family, a service of songs and night of tributes for the late lawyer would hold on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at Archbishop Vining Cathedral in Ikeja from 4-7pm.
His remains would later be interred at Gani Fawehinmi family compound in Ondo Town after a brief funeral service.
