The burial ceremony attracted thousands of Jewish worshippers, IPOB members, representatives of different pro-Biafra groups, PDP vice Presidential candidate during 2019 general elections, Dr. Peter Obi, Senate Minority leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator Victor Umeh, Traditional Prime Minister of Ibeku Ancient Kingdom, Chief Uche Akwukwaegwu, and Chief Godffery Onyemaobi.
