The remains of late Minister of State for Labour and Employment, James Ocholi (SAN), his wife and son would reportedly be buried between Wednesday to Friday next week.

Ocholi and his family died on Sunday, March 6, after the tyre of the SUV they were traveling in burst and somersaulted several times.

According to Vanguard, that the deceased family picked the tentative burial dates when the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige visited them. He is expected to communicate the arrangement to the Presidency.

It was gathered that the bereaved family decided to bury the dead as soon possible so as to reduce the pain of the four surviving children and plan for their future.

“It is only if it is a celebration of life for one that is old that we delay the corpse. The minister did not die at the ripe age so there is no way we could continue to delay the burial. His death is pathetic to us,” a family source told Vanguard.

The accident that took the minister’s life occurred along Kaduna-Abuja road on his way from  a church programme with his wife, Blessing and second son, Joshua.

Since his death, sympathizers have been flooding his No. 4 Dagash Street, Kado Estate, Abuja residence, including top government officials.

Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, and the Vice President’s wife , Mrs. Dolapo Osinabjo had paid the Ocholi family a condolence visit yesterday, March 7.
