Keshi Fixes January 15th Date to Bury Late Wife


Former Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has revealed that he will lay to rest the body of his late wife, Kate on January 15th.

Though Kate Keshi passed on at the family’s base in United States of America, Keshi revealed that the burial will take place back home in Nigeria, precisely in Benin City.

Keshi disclosed further that the January 15 date was arrived at following several weeks of meticulous planning and settlement of procedure, tops of which were the logistics involved in getting a flight to airlift the coffin.

Keshi got married at the age of 21 in 1983 when his wife was 20 years old.
