Mr Ifetayo said that some of the activities lined up for the anniversary include memorial lecture, church thanksgiving among others.

According to him, the memorial lecture will hold in Abuja on August 13.

He noted that the authentic programme for the commemoration would take place at the Wells Hosa Greenhouse Farm situated at Km 2, Benin Bye Pass Road, Off Benin-Sapele Road, Benin.

According to him, the thanksgiving service would hold at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, Sakponba Road, Benin.

Okunbo died in a London Hospital on August 8 , 2021 after a protracted illness.
