Two hundred cops will guard the cemetery where Diego Maradona is buried to deter grave robbers.

Argentine officials fear fanatical fans will plunder his plot in a bid to collect ghoulish mementoes of the World Cup superstar.

The Ministry of Security said the strict measures would be in force for at least a week to “prevent any incident” at the Bella Vista cemetery on the outskirts of the capital Buenos Aires.

Maradona, whose Hand of God goal knocked England out of the 1986 World Cup, died last week aged 60.

He had a heart attack following an op on a brain blood clot. Last week, thousands lined up to see the national hero’s body lie in state.

'THE PEOPLE WORSHIPPED DIEGO'

Many more lined the route of the funeral cortege, and cops fought running battles with fans.

Officials now fear a repeat of 1987, when ghouls robbed the grave of former Argentina president Juan Peron. A source said: “The authorities do not want to take any chances.

“The people worshipped Diego in the same way they adored Peron and there are genuine fears there may be an attempt to break in and remove parts of the body.”









Meanwhile, The Sun can reveal that Maradona’s neurosurgeon Lorenzo Luque, being investigated for possible manslaughter over the death, was quizzed on a murder in 2011.

He spent two months in jail while an investigation was carried out after a ­neighbour was kicked to death but he was never charged.

With hand of God: he cheated for his country, that is why his people love him, unlike devilish ocultic politicians we have here in Nigeria that have already sold the country to China through loans.

The great legend. He left a great mark.

This will automatically become a tourist site, a memorial site in honor of the great legend. Many will come from far and wide just to see it.

It will serve as a remembrance for generations to come
The government will make money from sports tourism

This is the reason why I am a strong advocate of tourism in Nigeria. Tourism is the only thing that affects every aspect of the economy
From food to agriculture, transportation, hospitalism, etc. It touches everywhere. I just pray we wake up someday

Draft me to such a duty post and see me tender my resignation from the police with immediate effect.

I didn't sign up to do such boring jobs when I entered the police academy.

It is that simple.

A Great deal of VANITY

He's dead as DEAD. He's long gone and the reality is his body is of no value. The question is what legacy did he leave behind and what was the state of his heart before his last breath. A man consists of his deeds and the state of his heart.
Immortalize the good lessons from his life while he was yet on earth (if any) and remobilize the police to protect the living citizens.
GROSS MISAPPROPRIATION!!!
