Asaba – Olorogun (Senator) Felix Ovudoroye Ibru, the first democratically elected governor of Delta State would be flown back to the state from Lagos on August 2 to begin his final journey home which would culminate in his interment in his hometown, Agbarha Otor, in Ughelli North Local Government Area on August 3.

According to Hon. Samuel Mariere representing Ughelli North Constituency 1 in the Delta State House of Assembly, the state government in conjunction with the Ibru family has agreed to the burial plans.

His body would arrive Government House, Asaba on August 2 following commencement of the burial rites with a night of tributes in Lagos on July 27.

From Asaba, he would be taken to White House, Ughelli, same day for a service of songs before arriving Agbarha Otor on August 3 for burial.

Hon. Mariere said the constituency and the state had lost one of its most illustrious sons who left an enviable democratic structure as governor of the state between January 1992 and November 1993 and enjoined all Deltans to troop out en masse to pay their last respects.
