Azazi’s Kinsmen Against His Burial In Yenagoa by 13volts(m): 9:26pm On Dec 27, 2012
Elders and youths from Peretorugbene, the hometown of the late National Security Adviser, General Andrew Owoeye Azazi, have kicked against the plan to bury the late General in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital

The immediate family of the late General in consultation with the Bayelsa state government had fixed the December 28th and 29th for his burial ceremony in the state, with plans to bury him in a site, within Yenagoa.

Addressing a news conference in the state capital on Thursday, some natives of Peretorugbene in Ekeremor local government council of the state led by the Tonkepa of Oporomor kingdom, Chief Abeke Ebikake, described late General Azazi as a great leader who had tremendous respect for the Ijaw tradition and culture, hence their demand for his body to be interred in his home town.

Also speaking at the occasion, the youth leader of Peretorugbene Kingdom, Mr Clement Ekpefa appealed to the wife of the late general to reconsider the decision of the family, saying the planned burial of General Azazi in Yenagoa is an “aberration.”

Peretorugbene is a riverine community in Bayelsa. It is reported that the families decision was based on averting numerous helicopter flights that will be needed to convey the General’s corpse and guest to the community.

The former NSA died in a helicopter crash in Nembe area of Bayelsa state on the 15th of December, alongside the former governor of Kaduna state, Mr Patrick Yakowa and four others.

As part of funeral activities for the late General Owoye Azazi, a service of songs was held in his honour in Lagos on Wednesday.

The pitiable thing about human beings is that sometimes we are so engrossed with "where and how one is buried" without ever sitting down to wonder where he/ she is going after now. Has it ever occurred to you that contrary to some African belief how you are buried does not determine whether you are resting in peace or not.

Most of the early disciples were fed to lions, they never had a befitting burial, but they are resting, relaxing and wearing the crown of honor many that were buried with pomp and pageantry can never smell

Its not how you died or where/how you were buried that matters but how you lived

Hmmmm..... The fear of helicopter is the begining of wisdom. But, the family no get sense ooo, because they want to please some people, they dont want to bury the man in his hometown again, were he hails from, his origin for that matter as if those people their pleasing will also love to be buried in a different town away from their home when they die. Just cos of a day burial, they family want to lay an everlasting legacy for azazi. Azazi will be crying by now anywere he is. Only if the dead can talk.

But why are we debating this?, As for me as long as he is going to be buried is Bayelsa I think they should lay him to rest in his village. It is funny that those rich politicians that loves flying are now afraid of naija flying coffins.
Can't they go to the village by boat? Oh sorry, millitants and kidnappers will be in the creek having a field day with them. Hehehehehe wetin we go come do now? Abeg na dem problem jare.
