The father of the late son of Senator Stella Oduah, Lt. Col. Satchie Emmanuel Etoromi, on Wednesday insisted that the corpse of his late son, Maxwell Omabuwa Chinedu Etoromi, must be buried in Warri, Delta State.
Maxwell, 28, died at a private hospital in Abuja last Friday, after suffering from a brain haemorrhage.
The ex-husband to Stella Oduah, at a news conference on Wednesday, warned that the corpse must not be buried at his maternal home or anywhere else other than Warri, where he hails from.
Etoromi claimed that he had already sent a delegation from Delta State to Oduah’s monarch, His Royal Majesty, Igwe D. O. Oduah, the Igwe of Akili Ozizor, Ogbaru, in Anambra State, expressing his sadness over the demise.
Late Maxwell’s father said that he only heard of his son’s death on the pages of newspapers, as he has not been briefed on the incident by his ex-wife.
“His Royal Highness Igwe Oduah 1, betrothed Stella Oduah to me on 18th November 1984 in Akili Ozizor. We married on December 16, 1984 in His Highness`s palace in Akili Ozizor. After the payment of dowry and exchange of gifts, we were taken to Nde-Mili where we performed the final rites
