He said bringing late Majek back to Nigeria from the US would cost a lot of money given the challenge posed by the Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic.

He noted that the decision to raise the fund was not only made by himself adding that some people advised that the account should be open in America and Nigeria.

“We want him to be buried here in Nigeria, his fatherland and not in some foreign land like a chicken.”
