The beautiful village of Azia, in Ihiala local government area of Anambra State, is now ready to accord one of its most accomplished and illustrious sons, Chief Bestman Obiefoka Clement Onyedi, a befitting burial.
Popularly known as Onwa Azia or Bestman, the successful Lagos-based businessman died weeks back. He was aged 70 and is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren.
Rolling out his burial plans, his son, Dr. Kelechi Onyedi, said there would be a Vigil Mass in his compound, in Ukwakwa, Azia, on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
A Lying In State will follow on Friday, August 23, in his palatial home; then a Funeral Service at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church, Azia.
Internment and other funeral activities will accompany that inside his compound. The condolence visits will continue on Saturday and then an outing service, still at the same St. Andrew’s Catholic Church, will wrap it up on Sunday, August 25.
Committees upon committees, expectedly, have been putting heads together to ensure a smooth burial for Onwa, who did not only impact dozens of lives but also left indelible marks in the annals of the community via his philanthropy and social engagements.
