Body now with relevant funeral home.
The death certificate was issued yesterday and processing the entire necessary documentations for her smooth journey to Nigeria with the daughter had began in earnest. Two people from Canada had volunteered to escort the body and child to Nigeria and we are eternally grateful.
We do not wish to speculate. In few days we shall pass information regarding the exact arrival date and other burial plans. And we appeal against distracting comments, as the committee is trying as much as possible to avoid joining issues with anyone publicly and we will not like when left with no other option than to respond. We ask for respect for all parties.
The committee will like to thank all members of the public especially her fans for your kind understanding and emotion extended to her family and friends at this trying period.”
