Okadigbo’s family plans private burial for Pharaoh


The family of former Senate President, the late Chuba Okadigbo, whose son, Pharaoh, died in a motor accident, will hold a private burial in compliance with COVID-19 protocols.

A statement signed by Chaka Okadigbo on behalf of the family reads: “It is with deep sorrow, the family of the late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo announces the death of Pharaoh Okadigbo, a husband, father, son, brother, and nephew.


Pharaoh passed away in the early hours of Sunday, May 23, 2021, at the young age of 45 years old as a result of a car accident in Abuja, Nigeria.

“He was an enchanting young man who, guided by his illustrious father, was determined to make his mark with the smile and cheer unique to him. Unfortunately, the ending chapter of his life was advanced too soon. In compliance with COVID-19 protocols, the family shall hold a private interment for our dearly departed.”

The family is appreciative of the prayers and well wishes of friends, associates and the general public, but requests that their privacy be respected during this trying time.
