Death is a necessary end for every creatures. It is a debt everyone owes. For the former governor of Ondo State, Chief Oluwasegun Agagu, even after death, his body was probably destined to have a tumultuous journey back to where every creatures are bound to go. Yesterday’s aircraft crash involving late Agagu’s remains, which claimed 13 other lives will lingers on for a very time.

The former governor has been buried at about 4pm on Friday, despite the plane crash involving his corpse yesterday.

He was buried at his hometown in Iju-Odo, Okitipupa Local Government Area, Ondo State.

Earlier, his burial rites commenced at St Paul Anglican Church amidst tight security.

There was also a heavy security presence at the country home of the late former governor as well as the Manuwa Memorial Grammar School and Iju-Odo Civic Centre, both slated as venues for the reception.

President Jonathan was not able to attend the funeral but was represented by Police Affairs Minister Caleb Olukolade.

The Christian wake-keep was held yesterday as scheduled.

After the initial confusion that trailed Thursday’s crash of an Associated Airline plane conveying Agagu’s casket, some family members and top Ondo State government officials, the family resolved to continue with the burial programme.

At least 13 persons died in the crash while six others were seriously injured.

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Mr. Ebenezer Alabi, had on Thursday announced the decision to continue with the burial programme after meeting with the Agagu’s family.

Death is the only unavoidable end. May his soul rest in peace.
