Tensions about the final laying to rest of Fuji Music genius, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister have been doused with the emergence of details about his victorious home coming slated for this Wednesday afternoon.
The music genius will leave London on Wednesday morning scheduled to arrive at Murtala Mohammed Airport at about 1pm Wednesday afternoon.
Sources in London claimed the Funeral Company handling all issues relating to his burial arrangements in conjunction with family and close associates have scored a big success in securing a flight for the transfer of the body to Nigeria after almost two weeks of stalemate caused by British weather condition.
“The body is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Wednesday at about 1pm and will head, immediately for Fuji Chambers in Isolo , official and most known residence of the Fuji creator”, confided a reliable source.
It has now been confirmed that Alhaji Agba would be laid to rest at his Lagos Isolo residence. Family decision chose his Lagos base as his final resting place.
For several days, all has been silent over the burial plans as the body continued stay in Britain has whipped up anxiety and tension over the lateness of the burial. This has culminating in lots of rifts and ill-feelings as religious leaders and families back home thought he had been buried in London. As a strong Islamic faith holder, The Fuji creator’s body was suppose to have been buried within 24 hours of his departure.
Several questions had been asked for the reason why the body had refused to arrive Nigeria earlier especially immediately after his death on December 16.
“The burial programme is currently being kept secret by the family because of pent up pressures, angers and resentments over the delay as we don’t want unnecessary speculation. The delay to convey the body home had been caused by lack of air ticket bookings as several days of heavy snowfalls grounded all means of transportation in Britain” a source told EMNnews in London over the weekend.
The source added that the Islamic Spiritual leaders in Nigeria since the announcement of his death on December 16, had commenced all essential spiritual prayers and all guiding Quaranic appeasement to meet up with the normal 24 hours burial deadline as a true muslim adding: “Already, the spirit of the departed music icon already is resting due to all the prayer appeasements offered in absentia, it was added.
It will be recalled that the effect of several days of heavy snow fall has impeded the home transfer of the body of the ace Fuji music star while his embalmed body has been kept under Funeral Directors’ care ever since his release from the hospital on Monday December 20 2010 following the completion of of the coroner and post mortem clearance and issuance of death certificate and other documentations for the release of the body.
Thousands of sympathisers on Tuesday December 21,2010 had besieged Peckham Mosque in South East London to have a glimpse of the body to pay their last respect.
