There was a pandemonium yesterday at Nkanu West LGA of Enugu as the community could not come to terms with former governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo over where his late son, Ifeanyi Nwobodo Jnr would be buried.
It was a show of shame at Amechi Awkunanaw in Enugu state as the burial ceremony of late Dr. Ifeanyichukwu Nwobodo, turned awry as Nigerian from all walks of life waited for the arrival of the corpse.
News going round in the early hours of yesterday was that the corpse of the deceased disappeared from the morgue.
A Source said his corpse was snatched away following a crisis among members of the clan and the former governor.
Trouble had started when the former governor chose a venue outside the family compound for the burial of the deceased, a decision which was stoutly opposed by other family members.
A family source said Jim Nwobodo decided to bury Ifeanyi outside the family house, on the notion that he (Ifeanyi) lost all his rights as a son by dying before his father.
However, the Awkunanaw youths and other members of the family, who were not happy with such decision, insisted that he would not be buried elsewhere. Following the deadlock, it was gathered that some yet-to-be identified members of the community made straight to the morgue and took the corpse away.
For several hours, some past and serving Governors, including the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, waited endlessly amidst the frustration. After a long fruitless wait, Ekweremadu, and other dignitaries stormed out of the venue.
