As eminent Nigerians continue to mourn the death of Mohammed, son of the late legendary human rights activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, some mourners who visited their residence on Thursday were denied access by security personnel at the entrance of the estate.
The visitors, who were not allowed access to the deceased residence at Fani Kayode Street, Off Sasegbon, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, expressed sadness over their inability to express their grief to the family.
A woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told reporters that she was turned back because no one picked her call to identify her.
“I am an in-law to the late Mohammed and I have been at the estate entrance for over an hour but was not allowed in.
“I have called those who know me on the phone to come and identify me so as to gain access but they are not picking up their calls,” she said.
Report says some reporters were also not allowed into the Fawehinmi’s residence.
The 52-year-old Mohammed, a lawyer and human rights exponent, died on Wednesday evening after complaining of breathing difficulties.
