H.I.D Awolowo To Be Buried In A Golden Casket, White Damask Cloth She Bought And Kept 36 Years Ago

Mrs H.I.D Awolowo, the wife of late sage Obafemi Awolowo, who died on September nineteenth, will be buried in a gold casket, her daughter reveals.

Daughter of the late Mrs H.I.D Awolowo, Reverend Mrs. Tola Oyediran has revealed that her late mother will be buried in a golden casket and with a relic damask cloth which the departed had purchased for that purpose 36 years ago.

“Mama in her unique way had kept a white damask to be laid in her casket whenever she died since the day she stopped her fabric sales business. And if I am not mistaken, I think she stopped selling fabrics around 1979; meaning that since then, she had kept that damask for that purpose. That is her wish and it will be like that.” she said.

Oyediran also revealed that Mama will be buried in a golden casket which will be acquired from the United States of America.

She will be buried beside her husband inside the Awolowo mausoleum in the family compound in Okenne, Ogun state.

Her final interment is scheduled for the 25th of November, which would have been her hundredth birthday.
