Ogbemudia remains arrive Benin

The body of former governor of defunct Bendel State, Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, has arrived Benin City, the Edo State capital. Ogbemudia died of diabetes complication in Lagos last week. The ex- governor’s remains landed at the Benin Airport at 1:20 p.m. aboard a Nigeria Airforce jet 029. Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and his Delta State counterpart, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa received the body at the airport. Market women, family members and politicians were also at the airport to catch a glimpse of the ex-governor’s remains. Some military personnel escorted the corpse from Lagos State. Ogbemudia’s body was being taken to his house at Iheya Street at the time of filing this report.
