Taximan's wife ready to forgive his killer

Grainne Cunningham

THE wife of taxidriver Moses Ayanwole has said she is ready to forgive his killer, as she makes preparations to bury him.

The 41-year-old father of one died on Wednesday after being assaulted on Dublin's Pearse Street in a row over a taxi fare.

And despite the fact that his death is not believed to have been racially motivated, anti-racist groups are planning a protest march in his honour this Wednesday.

Pastor Lawrence Oyetunji, of Christ Ambassadors Christian Centre in Finglas, confirmed that a service of song has been organised for next Friday, December 2, followed by a Requiem Mass and burial at Glasnevin Cemetery.

He said that Moses' wife Sola was a "good Christian" and had told him that she was "ready to forgive and let go".

A man was arrested in connection with the incident but released without charge. A file is being prepared for the DPP.
