Ajimobi said that a burial committee would be unveiled in due course, while, details of the activities would also be made public when all activi­ties have been agreed upon.

The governor said, “We have decided to make it a stately burial and we will set up a committee made up of members of the fam­ily, of which I am one; the Olubadan-in-council and gov­ernment officials.

“We have agreed that we will commence activities from February 6 and com­plete the burial on February 12 with the interment.
