It has been reported that there is now a controversy over where coach Stephen Keshi should be buried.
Family sources say the controversy is whether Keshi should be buried in Benin City, his adopted home, or Illah, his ancestral stead.
“That will easily be settled”, the source declared.
There is also a tentative burial date of July 28, that has not been totally agreed upon.
On Stephen Keshi Jr, the source declared that he is actually Keshi’s adopted son and will be accorded all rights due him.
“His real names we know, but we have no problem with him, he will take part in all rights due and we pray that we should not drag controversy into the burial of a great man like Keshi," a source said.
Keshi’s first daughter, Jennifer Keshi, has arrived the country from the United States to coordinate the burial plans with members of the larger Keshi family.
