The remains of a couple, Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye, who died in a fire on New Year’s Day, have been buried.

PUNCH Subway had reported that the couple burned to death at their home in Abeokuta, Ogun state, shortly after returning from a New Year’s cross religious service.

Some thugs reportedly followed them home, who also kidnapped their son and the maid.

It emerged that the man, Kehinde, worked with the Central Bank of Nigeria, while his wife, Bukola, before her death, worked with the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

The deceased couple’s funeral took place on Monday at Christ Anglican Church, Iporo-Ake, Abeokuta.

The service, which was conducted by Rev. SK Oyewale, was attended by families, friends and well-wishers, with the church packed to capacity.

The guests could not hold back their tears at the funeral and during the burial, many showered curses on the suspected arsonists who carried out the crime.

The couple’s remains, placed in two separate white coffins, were taken after the church service in a white hearse to a cemetery in the Lantoro area of ​​Abeokuta, where they were pledged to mother earth.

The officiating minister, who called for justice, took his Bible reading from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.

Oyewale expressed his unhappiness over the death of the couple and urged security agencies to conduct a diligent investigation to unravel who was behind it.

He also emphasized that God would deal with the perpetrators.

Hymns include ‘Forever with the Lord’, ‘Who Are Like Stars Appearing’, and ‘On the Resurrection Morning’.
