    Ex-Lagos lawmaker, King Sunny Ade’s wife Risikat Adegeye is dead

    Risikat Ajoke Adegeye, a former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and wife of Juju maestro, King Sunny Ade, is dead.

    A media aide to Adegeye’s son, Daniel Fayemi, and sources in the Lagos State House of Assembly confirmed this to The PUNCH.

    Fayemi said, “The philanthropic politician passed on in the early hours of Tuesday. Her remains have since been deposited at the TOS funeral homes, Lagos.

    “She is survived by her grieving husband and son, Mr. George Folarin. Funeral arrangements would be communicated accordingly.”

    Her son, Folarin, also confirmed the death on behalf of the family in a statement on Tuesday.

    He said the ex-lawmaker died after a brief illness.

    The statement read in part, “We wish to formally inform, friends, well-wishers, political associates, and the general public that Hon Risikat Ajoke Adegeye passed on after a brief illness during the early hours of Tuesday, 21st September 2021.

    “Hon Risikat Ajoke Adegeye was a Honourable Member in the 6th Assembly of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

    “She will be greatly missed not only by her immediate family but also by her political associates and followers. Further information in respect to her burial ceremony will be announced later after extensive consultations with the family.

    “Thank you as we pray that she continues to rest peacefully and eternally with the Almighty God.”

    The PUNCH gathered that the Juju maestro lost his wife a few hours to his 75th birthday.

    Adegeye was a former chairmanship aspirant under the platform of All Progressives Congress in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area.

    She represented Amuwo-Odofin at the Lagos State House of Assembly between 2011 and 2015.
