Despite plane crash, Agagu’s family, associates to proceed with burial Friday

The plane conveying Mr. Agagu’s corpse crashed on Thursday in Lagos.

The family and associates of the late Olusegun Agagu, former Ondo State Governor, have stated their intention to proceed with his burial today, Friday as scheduled.

In fact, as a demonstration of the family’s resolve to proceed with the burial of their late patriarch, a wake-keep for the late governor held Thursday night in his ancestral home even as aviation authorities are yet to release the names of the passengers and crew who died in Thursday’s ill-fated crash.

Mr. Agagu, who died on September 13, was scheduled for burial at his Iju-Odo home on Friday at 11:00 a.m. while his corpse was scheduled to arrive Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Thursday.

However, the Associated Airlines aircraft that was conveying his remains to Ondo crashed on Thursday morning at the Lagos Airport few minutes after take-off.
