Renowned Yoruba author, Adebayo Faleti, Passes Away


Renowned Yoruba author, Adebayo Faleti, is dead.

He died in his home on Sunday in Ibadan, aged 86.

His son, Adeniyi, told our correspondent that he was helping his father with his bath when he died.

According to him, his father observed the early morning devotion with his family members when he woke up and soon after, told them that he prayed to God to send someone else to continue his mission as he was tired and longing for home.

After the morning devotion, I helped him to the bathroom as I normally do, when he said he wanted God to send someone else to come and complete his work because he had done all he could do. He also said that he wanted to go home. Suddenly, I noticed that he was not breathing again.

“We took him to the University College Hospital, Ibadan, where he was confirmed dead. We shall miss him greatly.”

Before his death, the Oyo-born author received many awards, locally and internationally, including the national honour of Officer of the Order of the Niger.
