Elder Adaga, speaking through his spokesperson in Abuja on Wednesday, also expressed his condolences to the members of the Emodu Ogane Youths Association, Lagos branch, and The Dons Club of Lagos.

Elder Adaga called upon all sons and daughters of Emodu, scattered across the world, to maintain a spirit of prayer and steadfastness in their service to God.

Eleojo who survived by two sons, passed away following a period of illness. Condolences have continued to pour in from loved ones and sons and daughters of Emodu community.
