Nigerians, however, are quite ambivalent in their responses to this development. Having sent their condolences to the family, Nigerians feel the body of the sleeping legend should be laid to rest in the United States where he died, to avoid the financial tolls it’s already having on them.
Another group slams the idea of bringing dead Nigerian celebrities home for burial. A Facebook user commented saying: “So Nigerian is now a burial ground”
