Ex-Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Monday, gave the committee for the burial of deceased actress Moji Olaiya all the money needed to fly her remains back home, and her two months old baby from Canada where she died on May 18.
Revealing Tinubu’s kind gesture was the committee’s publicity secretary and the deceased’s colleague in the movie industry, Yomi Fabiyi, in an Instagram post.
In the post captioned: ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU PAID FOR THE COST OF BRINGING MOJI OLAIYA BODY AND CHILD TO NIGERIA, and accompanied by picture of Tinubu and daughter of the deceased actress, 18-year-old Adunola, Fabiyi wrote: The Committee after due deliberation consulted our father and a National Grand Patron of our association (TAMPAN) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the 21st May, 2017 to inform him of the demise of our colleague Moji Olaiya and that our humble unanimous decision is to have her body back, then given beffitting burial and have her 2 months old daughter re-united with the family.
