Deceased Actress Moji Olaiya's Body Coming To Nigeria from Canada, To Be Buried

The finalized agreement of the burial of deceased Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, earlier scheduled for Friday by 4pm in Canada, was terminated at the last minute by Ekiti state government with his full support.

The remains of the 42 year old lady who died of cardiac arrest following childbirth complications on Thursday, May 18, in Canada, will now be ferried to Nigeria for burial.

Insiders at the Magodo home of the actress revealed that the government of Ekiti volunteered to bankroll the shipment of the corpse to Nigeria.

Earlier, the family and her colleagues had agreed that Moji Olaiya should be buried in Canada as Islam enjoins (with deceased buried not later than the second day after death).

But the plans changed with the intervention of Ekiti state (where the actress is from).

Her eldest daughter, Adunola, 18, had insisted that her mother’s corpse should be brought back to Nigeria. But she was persuaded to allow the Canada funeral yesterday.

Moji Olaiya’s Abuja based husband and father of her two month old baby, who arrived Lagos two days back, also acceded to the Thursday burial.

But with Ekiti state intervention, the burial will now take place in Nigeria.
