Junior Pope: Body exhumed and reburied

The remains of Precious Ofurum, the sound engineer tragically lost in a boat mishap alongside Nollywood actor Junior Pope and three other crew members, have been exhumed for burial in Rivers State.

The accident, which occurred on April 10 in the River Niger near Asaba, Delta State, claimed the lives of all on board as they were en route to a movie location.

Initially, Precious was laid to rest by the riverbank due to his family’s inability to fulfill the necessary requirements for transporting his body back home. However, his mother appealed to Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara for assistance in repatriating her son’s remains for a proper burial.
