Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State aborted the burial in Canada of popular Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, at the last minute on Friday.
Instead his government has agreed to foot the cost of bringing her body to Nigeria for burial, according to various reports.
The popular actress, 42, suddenly died on Wednesday following cardiac arrest, two months after she gave birth to her second daughter.
Her eldest daughter, Adunola, 18, had insisted that her mother’s corpse should be brought back to Nigeria.
‘She must be brought back. ‘I don’t care what anybody says, I just want my mother’s body’, a grieving Adun had said on Thursday.

Moji was the daughter of veteran highlife musician, Victor Olaiya.
