Idoo Community in Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State has described as shocking and a sad loss the death of one of its sons, Sergeant Opeyemi Adesina, in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Ibrahim Attahiru, other officers and crew members on Friday, at the Kaduna International Airport.
Describing the demise of Sergeant Adesina as a colossal loss not only to the Idoo Community but also to the state and Nigeria as a whole, the community said the deceased would be missed by all.
Sergeant Adesina, who is popularly called Opeyemi by members of his community, is from Balogun’s compound in Idoo and he died about three weeks after his daughter’s dedication.
The spokesman of the community, Alhaji Akanni Olohunlomerue, in a statement made available on Saturday, described Sergeant Adesina as a soldier who will be missed by the community.
While praying for the repose of the soul of the deceased, the community leader also prayed to God to give the families of other dead victims the fortitude to bear the loss of their loved ones.
