Father Of Slain Lawyer, Lowo, Dies

Fresh tragedy hit the family of late Lowo Oyediran Ajanaku, who was allegedly murdered by his wife, Yewande, in Ibadan recently, with the death yesterday of the deceased foster father, Pa. Oyewole Yahaya Ajanaku. The death of Pa. Oyediran, said to be the patriarch of Ajanaku family, occurred in the early hours of Monday in Gbongan, headquarters of Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun State.

Family sources told National Mirror that Pa Ajanaku, aged 89, may have died of high blood pressure following disclosure to him that his son had been murdered. A member of Ajanaku family, who spoke with our correspondent on condition of anonymity, confirmed the death of Pa Ajanaku in his residence at Owoope area of Gbongan. The source added that Pa Ajanaku, though immediate senior brother to the real father of the late Lowo, took over his upbringing in 1990 when the deceased father died.

“But on hearing the sad news last week, the man who was the immediate senior brother of Lowo’s father could not bear the shock. He developed complications and later died of high blood pressure in the early hours of Monday”, the source explained. The source added that the mother of the deceased had not been informed of Lowo’s death since the incident happened last week, saying “she is being kept in Ile Ife”.
