Lagos - The first son of late former Super Eagles coach
Stephen Keshi has denied reported burial arrangement of his father.
Stephen Keshi Jnr said the family has not fixed a date yet
for the burial of the late AFCON 2013 winner.
“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 in a press statement made available to News24.
