Ekiti State Volunteers To Bankroll Moji Olaiya’s Burial, Body To Be Brought Back To Nigeria 


The burial of Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, earlier scheduled for 4 pm yesterday, (Friday, May 19, 2017) in Canada, was aborted at the last minute by Ekiti state government, Encomium reports.

The remains of the 42 year old mother of two daughters who died of cardiac arrest following childbirth complications on Thursday, May 18, in Canada, will now be ferried to Nigeria for burial.

Insiders at the Magodo home of the actress, revealed that the government of Ekiti volunteered to bankroll the shipment of the corpse to Nigeria. 

Earlier, the family and her colleagues had agreed that Moji Olaiya should be buried in Canada as Islam enjoins (with diseased buried not later than the second day after death) at 4 pm yesterday. 

But the plans changed with the intervention of Ekiti state (where the actress is from). Her eldest daughter, Adunola, 18, had insisted that her mother’s corpse should be brought back to Nigeria. But she was persuaded to allow the Canada funeral. 

Moji Olaiya’s Abuja based Alhaji husband and father of her two month old baby, who arrived Lagos on Thursday, also acceded to the Friday burial, but with Ekiti state intervention, all will await the corpse which will arrive Nigeria soon.

    Misplaced priority, someone that has never been identified with the state before. Anyway God just answered the prayers of adunola though.
