The Family of late Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha says the burial of their father should not involve absolute government interference.
Sources close to the family on Monday also added that the late Izon father’s burial should not be politicized.
According to the source what they required from government is to show their appreciation by way of supporting the family with some logistics towards the burial of their father and nothing beyond that.
Furthermore, the family source indicated that the late Izon icon was a father to all people within and outside the world and as such they would want all Izons to be a part of the burial.
When this correspondent visited the city home of Alamieyeseigha at Opolo in Yenagoa, a large crowd of people lined up to sign the condolence register as they described him with several notable expressions related to the antecedents of his past life.
It is not clear when the late Alamieyeseigha will be buried but our source says that he may be buried before the Bayelsa state governorship election on December 5, 2015. This is to avoid any political insinuations that may crop up during the election.
Chief A;lamieyeseigha was born in 1962. He was a Nigeria Air Force Squadron Leader and later became the Director Research, Planning and Budget with National Fertilizer Company of Nigeria and became the governor of Bayelsa state in 1999. He died on October 10, 2015.
