The demise of Dr Frederick Fasheun, the Founder of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC),on Saturday, has thrown his residence in Okota-Isolo, Lagos in mourning mood as friends throng in to grief with the family.
No fewer than 70 mourners have signed the condolence registers as at 7 p.m. on Saturday, opened at his residence.
Family members and some friends formed the majority of early comers that signed the registers.
One of the early callers, who came to grief with the family, included Mr Olawale Oshun, a former federal lawmaker in the state.
NAN reports that only few family members and friends were seen around the compound, discussing the death of the late legend.
One of the sons of the late Yoruba chieftain, Mr Bankole Fasheun, said the late OPC leader stood for the masses and the downtrodden in his life time.
Bankole told NAN that Fasheun would be missed greatly because he had left a very big vacuum with his examplary life and leadership as well as deep passion for the poor.
“He was a loving man, a kind man and a good man. He was someone who stood for the masses and average Nigerians who as in the lower strata of the society.
” He embodied the agitation for the emancipation of the masses and we can see this in various organisations he established like OPC, Oodua Resource Centre and various others.
“He tried to alleviate the suffering of Nigerian masses in anyway he could.
“He did his best and he would be surely missed. He empowered the masses. His legacy will not fall apart.”
He said that Fasheun’s legacies would be sustained because all he built were for the public.
NAN reports that the OPC chieftain died at about 1 a.m, Saturday at the intensive care unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital Ikeja (LASUTH).
Fasehun, who was born in Ondo on Sept. 25, 1938, Ondo State, was an active member of National Democratic Coalition (NADECO).
He also founded Frederick Isiotan Fasehun Foundation (FIFF), a non-governmental organization, which has security, unity and health as its core mandate.
