An eyewitness account had it that Okuneye’s assailants only took
his life and fled the scene without taking anything away from him.

He said, “The service was on when we noticed that some boys numbering about

about to mount the pulpit. It was about 11.00a.m.

an end. Some people, especially, the elderly people were still in shock as I am

“Otunba was not a politician, so his death could not be linked to any
political assassination. I know that he has a lot of matter in various courts
and from my little observation, we cannot rule out this area in his killing,
but God knows best”, he said.

among the earliest furniture makers in Ijebu area. He is survived by 6 wives
and over 20 children. His remains had been deposited at the mortuary of the
