The 40th-day Fidau Prayer, which held a few days ago in honour of Oba Idowu Oniru at his palace in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos, was an event to remember.

The crème de la crème of the society, governors, senators and captains of industries came out to identify with the Oniru family.

After he passed on September 23, 2019, series of activities to mark the late Oba Oniru’s burial have been held before the 40th-day celebration to climax the four-week burial.

Family, friends and well-wishers also recorded their presence and all enjoyed good musical performances by King Sunny Ade and King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal.
