Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi is expected to play a part in the funeral of Stephen Keshi just as several state governments have indicated interest to also play a part.

Family sources said Abuja, the Federal capital will be the first port of call, with players of the national team expected to be led by Mikel also be reached to play a part in the burial ceremony.

Indications have already emerged that Keshi will be buried in his ancestral home of Illah, in Delta state, with the Federal Government, Edo, Delta and Cross River state governments already indicating interest to be part of the burial ceremony.

More states are expected to indicate interests.

His children are also expected to start arriving from the United States later this week as arrangements peak for his burial.

Meanwhile, close friends have urged the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation to clear match bonuses and allowances owed Keshi before his death.

Keshi was still owed for the games against Sudan, which was won in Abuja and the drawn game against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana played in Uyo, along with his officials before he died last week.

“Let them demonstrate their sudden love for him by paying to his family what it was that they owed to kick-start preparations for his burial”, an ex-player who does not want his name in print declared.
