  5. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Despite the way they embezzle this country's money they can't even spend thousands because i know they can't spend million to treat this man while he was alive walking barefoot around.i wonder what the new generation will face.now they will gather themselves and say oh what a lost. Useless people. . . .

  7. It's a shame for all of us who knew that Rashidi Yekini was walking barefoot in Ibadan and did nothing about it. There are many more Rashidi Yekinis still around and we keep talking instead of being our brother's keeper. We should never let this happen again
