“My dad, a distinguished Senator in the Second Republic, no doubt has his flaws but he was a great statesman, a fantastic man, lover of children and education.

“He was a great politician who plays politics till he died because anytime we are together, he still discuss politics.

“We are preparing for his 99th birthday on Sept. 30, but unfortunately he died last night. His death is painful, all the children, family and Ikale people will miss him greatly,” she said.

Onunkun was blessed with two wives and 12 children – seven males and five females.
