Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday shed tears at the funeral ceremony of the Flight Sergeant Olasunkanmi Olawunmi and six other Air Forces Officers at the Military cemetery in Abuja.
It was earlier reported that a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Beachcraft airplane crashed shortly after the perimeter fence of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on last Sunday, killing all the people in the plane.
Olawunmi, an Ekiti son was among the seven persons involved in the plane crash.
Late FS Olawunmi, an indigene of Ogotun Ekiti in Ekiti West local government of the Ekiti State.
Fayemi and the family of late Olawunmi were shed streams of tears and cried heavenly in the funeral ceremony at the Military cemetery in Abuja.
Late Olawunmi left behind his wife, Anne Omolola Olasunkanmi, three children and the aged mother.
They knew death was inevitable, but they never knew the Grim Reaper would come this early for their loved ones.
So, on Thursday when the Air Force held a funeral for its fallen heroes, their women found the reality too hard to accept: they gnashed their teeth, they rolled on the floor, and they shed streams of tears.
At least two of them were not satisfied with just crying and screaming on top of their voices.
They grieved so close to the coffins as if ready to be interred with the remains of their loved ones— if only the authorities would allow them.
