Moji Olaiya’s daughter , Adun insists her mothers corpse be brought back to Nigeria for burial
A 20-year-old daughter of the late Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya , Adun has insisted that the corpse of her mother be brought back to Nigeria for proper burial.
This is against the Islamic tradition which stipulates that a dead person should be buried the same day they died, except they died at night and be buried the following day.
Moji Olaiya was a practising Muslimah before her death and she is expected to be buried according to Islamic rites.
“Leaving a corpse for long before burying is a way of suffering the dead and increasing the pains of their loved ones because the more they see their loved one lying lifelessly, the more they feel bad.” an Islamic teacher, Ustaz Mhikail Shittu has said.
The adamant 20-year-old daughter insists that her mother be brought back to Nigeria no matter how they tried to convince her.
Late Actress, Moyi Olaiya converted to Islam as an adult, and certain members of her family are suggesting that she be interred today according to Muslim rites.
According to reports, Adun disagreed, Family members had to usher her into a secluded room to calm her down, though, the grieving young lady kept repeating that she wants to see her mother.
‘She must be brought back,’ Adun said. ‘I don’t care what anybody says, I just want my mother’s body’.
It could, however, be difficult to bury her the same day as internments are costly in developed countries.
In Canada where she died, funeral costs can rise as high as $15,000. Flying her body back, on the other hand, could cost around half that figure.
