The burial dates were announced in a statement on behalf of the children and family of the late foremost unionist by the Chief Frank Ovie Kokori Burial Planning Committee (Media Subcommittee) and made available to journalists at Ovu, the country-home of the Kokoris in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State.
