Funmi Iyanda’s Father Is Dead
Journalist-Broadcaster Funmi Iyanda and her brother Olumide Iyanda (who is the editor of Saturday Independent) have lost their father Pa Gabriel Olukunle Iyanda.
A family source tells us Pa Iyanda, 71, was strong and fit, until minor health complaints.
'He was a very strong and healthy man' says our source. 'We even spoke on the phone today. Then I heard he went to the hospital briefly. Next thing we heard, he had passed'.
The Iyandas lost their mother 39 years ago – when the family's youngest child was four months old.
The Iyandas were this evening meeting at the family's Badagry- Lagos home, said our source.
