Doctor Chike Akunyili, the husband of Nigeria’s former Minister of Information and Director General of NAFDAC, Dora Akunyili, has been buried.

There was weeping and wailing as his body was retrieved from the morgue on Thursday for the final rites before he was finally committed to mother earth.

Doctor Chike, a medical practitioner and owner of one of the best hospitals in the South-East, was murdered in Anambra State on September 29, 2021.

Earlier on Thursday, Nov. 25, the body of Dr. Chike Akunyili was retrieved from St. Charles Borromeo Special Hospital by his sons, some Catholic priests, and former Anambra state governor Peter Obi, who is also from Agulu.

The body was taken to Agulu Town Hall briefly before he was taken to his compound to lay in state.

By 10:00 am, the body arrived at Madonna Catholic Church in Agulu for a Pontifical Requiem Mass after which he will be taken to his country home to be committed to Mother Earth.

On Tuesday, Nov. 23, a pontifical service was held at the Christ the King Parish in Enugu to pray for the repose of the late Dr. Chike Akunyili.

Former Anambra State Governor Mr. Peter Obi and his wife Mrs Margaret Obi were present at the event with Dr. Akunyili’s children who returned to Nigeria to lay their father to rest.
