The amount was mentioned yesterday by one of the burial commitee members.
“I may be wrong, Asiwaju who promised the committee $40k on Saturday changed it to $30k by Monday. Perhaps he had been fed Gov Ayo Fayose had helped. Meanwhile the committee had thought they will use the excess to pay Adun’s school fees and empower the grandmum who will take up the upkeep of the 2 months old the deceased left behind.”
However, an insider revealed that he released the equivalent of N11.4 million towards the ferrying of the corpse of Moji Olaiya from Canada to Nigeria, among other expenses.
One of Moji’s siblings, Femi Olaiya arrived Canada from his London base in the night of Saturday to prepare Moji’s corpse for freight to Nigeria.
