The first full meeting of the Central Committee on the Burial of Dim Odumegwu-Ojukwu concluded and approved the final burial programme of the icon this evening and addressed a press conference in Abuja. It was decided that the funeral period will run from January 14 to February 12. While burial ceremony activities will hold in over 12 cities in Nigeria, as well as in London and Dallas, USA, his remains will only go to Abuja, Owerri, Aba, Umuahia, Enugu, Awka and Nnewi (in that order). He will be buried at 5pm on Saturday Feb. 3, at Nnewi after a pontifical requiem Mass. (Ikemba had requested that the service be a Latin Mass) I will brief you almost on a daily basis on the activities.
