Oguntola, who yesterday led the state government delegate to Ilorin in Kwara State for the burial of the victims, said that the three grandchildren were buried at the Muslim burial ground in Ilorin, while the grandfather and his two wives were buried beside the mosque on the estate owned by the grandfather.

 “The Emir of Ilorin was represented at the burial that took place on the estate owned by Alhaji Momodu, opposite Air Force School, near International Airport, Ilorin.
