Moji Olaiya's daughter insists her mum must be buried in Nigeria and not Canada | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The burial arrangement of recently deceased Yoruba actress, Moji Olaiya is causing an unexpected rift within the family.

The late actress was a practising Muslim who converted from Christianity as an adult, and certain members of her family are suggesting that she be interred today according to Muslim rites.

However, her 20-year-old daughter, Adun is having none of that and insists that her mother’s corpse be brought back for burial in Nigeria.

Although family members ushered her into a secluded room to calm her down, the grieving young lady kept repeating that she wants to see her mother.

‘She must be brought back,’ Adun said. ‘I don’t care what anybody says, I just want my mother’s body’.

It could, however, be difficult to bury her the same day as internments are costly in developed countries.

In Canada where she died, funeral costs can rise as high as $15,000. Flying her body back on the other hand could cost around half that figure.

There is no concrete plan for her burial at this minute.

  1. Somebody should please set up go fund me account on behalf of the family. Hopefully, they can raise enough money to fly her back to Nigeria. I understand her daughter's feeling. May the Almighty God comfort her, the baby and all the bereaved. And may He grant the deceased Aljana Firdausi (Amin).

  2. If your mum was married,definitely you don't have a say about the funeral arrangement.It's up to her new family,most especially her husband that would decide that.Sorry for your loss but sentiments can not overrule law.

  3. Sorry for the lost but instead of looking for a way to bring her body down to Naija Adun can be fly to Canada for her to see the body and she will be buried over there if that's the wish of the husband.
