    It was all tears as members and staff of the Lagos State House of Assembly led by Speaker Mudashiru Obasa on Wednesday received the body of Hon. Abdul-Sobur Olayiwola Olawale, who passed on in Jos, Plateau State on Tuesday.

    The remains of the lawmaker arrived at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in the afternoon and was immediately conveyed to his residence in a motorcade that involved Obasa, lawmakers, the Lagos State Legislators Wives Association (LASLEWA), friends, family and associates of the deceased.

    The body was interred according to Islamic rites.



    The body, according to a statement by Eromosele Ebhomele, Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, was later moved to the Ebony Vaults where Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, joined the crowd of mourners.


    The Lagos State House of Assembly had on Tuesday announced the demise of the lawmaker, who, until his demise represented Mushin Constituency 2 and chaired the House Committee on Local Government and Community Relations.
