Family of the late former Senate President Chuba Okadigbo, whose first son Pharaoh, died recently in a car accident, has announced it would hold a private burial in compliance with COVID-19 protocols.
Chaka Okadigbo in a statement on behalf of the family appreciated the prayers and well wishes of friends, associates and the general public, but requested that their privacy be respected during this trying time.
“It is with deep sorrow, the family of the late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo announces the death of Pharaoh Okadigbo, a husband, father, son, brother, and nephew,” the statement read.
“Pharaoh passed away in the early hours of Sunday, May 23, 2021, at the young age of 45 years old as a result of a car accident in Abuja, Nigeria.
“He was an enchanting young man who, guided by his illustrious father, was determined to make his mark with the smile and cheer unique to him. Unfortunately, the ending chapter of his life was advanced too soon. In compliance with COVID-19 protocols, the family shall hold a private interment for our dearly departed.”
