Finally, Alamieyeseigha May Be ‘Buried’ This Saturday

The controversy surrounding the death of the first civilian governor of Bayelsa State, Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha, will be laid to rest this weekend has plans have been finalised for the burial of his remains.

Barring any last-minute change, Alamieyeseigha is expected to be buried this Saturday, 26th March 2016 in his hometown of Amasoma in Bayelsa State.

Alamieyeseigha died on  10th October 2015 at the age of 63.

Alamieyeseigha died at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital after going into coma for days.

The traditional ruler of Amasoma community and cousin to the deceased, HRH Graham Naingba, had disclosed dates of Alamieyeseigha’s funeral rites – March 24 to 26, 2016 – in January 2016 following rumours that the late politician faked his own death to avoid a second prosecution by a London Court.

It is however unclear if the funeral rites will progress this week as there are yet to be funeral announcements in newspapers in honour of the late politician who will be given a state burial as disclosed by the incumbent Bayelsa governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson in October 2015.
