By Olatunde Fapohunda MD,

Prince James Ayandele Ajayi, aged 77 years, was laid to rest in his hometown of Ada, Osun State on Friday 29th June 2018 following a series of ceremonies lasting three days. The first leg of the events took place in Ibadan on Wednesday 27th where a commendation service followed by a service of songs was held at Molete Baptist Church and the Ibadan residence of Prince Ajayi respectively. On Thursday 28th, the remains of Prince Ajayi travelled in a motorcade to Ada, Osun State where a wake keep service was held. The turnout of Ada people that met the motorcade was huge, befitting a great man who had done so many good deeds for his people. The length of the motorcade itself stretched for miles, a testament to the affection and high esteem in which Prince Ajayi was held. The burial service took place on the third day, Friday 29th at Ada Baptist Church followed by interment at his residence, Derilar Villa.

Below is a gallery of pictures and videos of the ceremonies…
