Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor-elect of Lagos state, and Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), were among the dignitaries who witnessed the burial of Mufutau Hamzat, father of Obafemi, the deputy-governor elect of Lagos state.

Until his death on Sunday evening, Hamzat was Olu of Afowora Sogade, a traditional stool in Ogun state.

He was a frontline politician in Lagos state, having served as a commissioner and a lawmaker.

He was elected into the state house of assembly under the platform of the Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) in 1979.

Below are pictures from the burial:

Sanwo-Olu shared photos of the funeral prayers on his Twitter handle and wrote, “In all things, we give thanks. @drobafemihamzat’s father Oba Mufutau Olatunji Hamzat, Olu of Afowowa was laid to rest this morning. My wife & I joined the national leader of our party Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, other party chieftains, friends & well-wishers at the burial.”
