Not a few of the residents of Millennium Estate in Lekki Phase 1 where popular broadcaster and Late Afro-beat king, Fela’s son-in-law, Femi Segun lived until his death from power bike accident last Friday had told him severally that it was inherently dangerous to ride power bike.
However in such exchange, the ex-diplomat and ace compere, Segun’s argument was that “power bike is better than car and riding it is an exercise”.
Sources told orijoreporter that the accident, which led to the death of Segun who is the son of Mrs. Mabel Segun, a renowned novelist happened few metres to his house, in front of The Admiralty, a building close to Millennium Estate. Riding on a high speed, it was said that the bike crashed into a parked car, somersaulted twice and flung him.
It was gathered that deceased who died at the age of 56, sustained serious multiple injuries, and two hospitals refused to admit him to their emergency rooms fearing he would die in their care.
He later died on the Island in another hospital where he was admitted.
Segun and Fela’s first daughter, Yeni were once married and they both have a daughter, Rolari, who is in her mid-20s.
The deceased spoke French, Portuguese and German and had a working knowledge of Spanish, Italian, Ibo and Hausa languages.
