The 27-year-old who was accompanied by former Super Eagles’ star, Victor Obinna Nsofor, Victor Ugoh, a US-based chemist and friend of late Keshi, said:
“I just came into Nigeria on Tuesday night, and we read in the papers today that somebody has fixed a date for the burial.
“I am shocked like my sisters and my brothers. Since our father died, nobody has spoken to us about how he died, and we have not even seen his corpse. Yet, someone is fixing a date for his burial!,” he said.

“I cannot thank everyone enough. We have only heard good and great words about our father since his death. I am going to Benin City now. The family will sit down and come up with a date for the funeral, but we also appreciate that he was a national figure and will harmonize our plans with that of the government and the NFF.
“Our father was a loving family man and we will miss him greatly. Our joy is that he left a worthy legacy for Nigeria football and for his family,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ifeyinwa, Keshi’s daughter, and Emeka, her husband, who are based in North Carolina, USA, also flew into Nigeria on Tuesday.
