The burial of Chief Julius Bukun Odubela, the Balogun Ijo of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Ikenne, Ogun State, successfully took place penultimate Friday in the town.
People came from all corners of the country and abroad to witness the final burial rites of the septuagenarian.
For one who had lived a life of service to man and God, his burial was a great celebration. The celebration began on Wednesday with a service of songs by the Men’s Fellowship at his residence and was followed by a Christian wake on Thursday at AUD Primary School in the evening.
The funeral service was presided over by the Very Rev F. T. Tunji Oluborode and the Rt Rev J. M. B. Ibikunle.
Tributes poured in from home and abroad. And there were many beautiful words to describe JB, as he was fondly called by family members and friends.
According to John Olusegun Odubela, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, and the deceased’s nephew, “he was not just a disciplinarian, he was so many things to many different people.”
He is survived by Rev (Dr) Kayode Odubela, Dr Gbenga Odubela and Engr Femi Odubela, among others.
