Femi Osibona’s family debunks rumour of feud between wife, in-laws

Femi Osibona Fourscore Homes Ikoyi Collapsed Building

The family of the late managing director of Fourscore Homes Femi Osibona has discredited rumour of a feud between the wife of the deceased and his siblings.

Mr Osibona died after a 21-storey building collapsed in Ikoyi area of Lagos on November 1.

Reports claimed last week that his wife Doyin flew into Nigeria from the United States following the death of her husband but was denied access to his Ikoyi residence by his siblings.

The reports further said she arrived at the Ikoyi house with mobile policemen to lay claim to her late husband’s assets, including luxury vehicles, money and other valuable items.

However, a lawyer Olufemi Adeniyi in a statement on Monday written on behalf of the family said the reports were falsified.

“The ‘brothers’ that the sadistic media houses referred to were actually Ebun, who is female and Lanre, both of whom have no time to ambush anyone on any matter whatsoever. They are the best anyone would love to dwell. While the wife in reference is a peace-loving soulful woman, Doyin, all of whom as a united family are still, more than anyone, grieving over the loss of their departed loved one.

“Doyin had just returned home from UK with her second daughter Pelumi who is studying medicine abroad, in order to meet the family and plan a befitting burial for her husband. It was all tears, hugs, condolences, sympathy, comfort, solace, prayers, and fellow feeling that followed, having not seen one another in weeks. Photos don’t lie. Just this past Saturday, 6th day of November, 2021, the grieving family were together consoling one another, as evidenced in this shot I stumbled upon, picturing Femi Osibona’s wife, one of the assumed ‘brothers’ in the carefree report, who actually is the deceased sister Ebun and Sola Olabiran the deceased big brother/confidant,” the statement read.

Mr Adeniyi pleaded with the public to allow the Osibona family mourn peacefully.
