Esiri said the activities will begin in Lagos with a Service of Songs slated for April 9. This, he said, will be followed by a Lying in State in his Mafoluku residence, and on April 10, a Mass at a Catholic Church, also in Lagos.
The programme move to Delta State where another Service of Songs will hold in Warri on April 11, and Lying in State and Interment in Abraka, on April 12.
