Speaking to This Day when he arrived in the country, ‘I just came into Nigeria on Tuesday night, and we read in the papers today that somebody has fixed a date for the burial.’

‘I am shocked like my sisters and my brothers. Since our father died, nobody has spoken to us about how he died, and we have not even seen his corpse. Yet, someone is fixing a date for his burial!”

The Big Boss is survived by four children and his mother.
