Agagu’s Family Members Were Warned Of An Impending Tragedy Before Agagu’s Burial, Insist Burial Plans Will Hold Today!

Family members  of the former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun
Agagu, have insisted that they will  go ahead with the arrangements for
his interment despite the plane crash on Thursday. They sympathise with the families of  those who lost
their  loved ones  in the crash, but that will not stop them from going ahead with the burial. The
casket bearing Agagu’s  body  was not affected by the crash.
A member of the   Agagu  family, Chief Sehindemi Oguntoye,  said the
community had a  premonition  that  a tragedy would occur  before the
burial of the former governor. So the family held a prayer session 
after it was warned of an impending  tragedy before the burial.
He said:

“The community had  been informed of an impending tragedy and the
community had held a vigil  to avert it. The vigil even ended today
(Thursday). It was a big tragedy for Iju-Odo community.
We had before the death of Dr. Agagu lost our traditional ruler, and now a plane crash which involves  our loved ones.’’
He, however, urged the community to be fervent in prayers  to prevent further tragedies.

The  residents of the community were in pensive mood, with many of
them gathering in front of their houses discussing the incident. St.
Paul’s Anglican Church, Iju-Odo  has been renovated for the burial
service scheduled for Friday while major roads leading into  the town
had  been rehabilitated.
The  grave  where Agagu will be  buried  in the church cemetery has also  been decorated to give him  a befitting farewell.
