Akhigbe’s body to arrive Nigeria Saturday

The body of late former Chief of General Staff, Vice-Admiral Mike Akhigbe, is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), quoting Nigeria’s Consul-General in New York, Ambassador Habib Habu, said the body would depart New York on Friday night.

“Earlier on Friday, a church service in honour of the former Naval chief will take place at the Holy Family Church located at 315E, 47th Street in New York,’’ he said.

Akhigbe died on 28 October at the age of 67 in New York.

Habu said members of staff in the offices of the Nigeria Permanent Representative to the UN and the Nigerian Consulate have been encouraged to attend the service.

Akhigbe was also a former military governor of Lagos and Ondo states.
