This is the statement signed by the club’s general secretary, Otunba Bayo Babatunde:
With heavy hearts but in total submission to the wish of Almighty Allah, We in the Association of friends announce the transition to eternity of our indefatigable Board of trustee member and past President, Kabiyesi Oba Abdulfatai Irawo of Odi Olowo, Mushin. He was aged 80 years. Kabiyesi was a foundation member of our club and a great bridge builder.

We shall miss his passion, fatherly and wise counsels and also his material contributions to our great club. May the almighty Allah forgive and grant him eternal rest.
