Nigerian Scholar Pius Adesanmi Buried In Canada Without Families Consent, Family Tackles Wife For That

Nigerian Scholar Pius Adesanmi Buried In Canada Without Families Consent, Family Tackles Wife For That: A Nigerian scholar based in Canada named Pius Adesanmi from Kogi state was reported dead in the Ethiopian crash of March, His remains have been laid to rest by his white wife in Ottawa on Saturday 26 October without the family’s consent and it is springing up so many misunderstanding now.

An article was later released by his family member Mike Oyelude, and it was pasted by the cable, According to Oyelude, late Mr. Pius Adesanmi wished to be buried in his hometown Kogi state but now the wife has Mrs. Adesanmi is accused of going contrary to the wishes of his husband by lying his remains in Canada and equally without any of their notice.

Read the article released by the relative below;

Saturday, November 2, 2019, made it exactly one week since we read on social media about the purported burial of our son, the late Prof. Pius Adebola Adesanmi. This burial reportedly took place in Ottawa on October 26, 2019. Since the so-called burial, we have waited for confirmation and used established channels to find out what really happened.

It is now evident, that our late son’s remains were interred in Ottawa without family consent and contrary to the wish of the deceased to be buried in his place of birth, Isanlu. To our shock and chagrin, this internment was carried out without the knowledge or consent of Prof. Adesanmi’s aged mother and his eldest daughter.

Since the death of our son in the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines crash, we have been subjected to unspeakable disrespect, deceit, and discourtesy by Boeing, Ethiopian Airlines and Prof Adesanmi’s widow in Ottawa. We want to place on record that neither Boeing, Ethiopian Airlines nor Prof. Adesanmi’s widow Olumuyiwa Balogun has done right by the family. We have not been called nor informed about the accident to date.

Prof. Adesanmi was born in Isanlu, in Kogi State to the Adesanmi family. We raised our son in the best custom of our ancestors and the Christian faith. Although his father, Pa Adesanmi passed before his son in relatively old age, he is survived by his aged mother Mama Lois Adesanmi and two young daughters Oluwadamilare and Oluwatise. It is public knowledge in official and private circles that both children were born to Prof. Adesanmi in Ottawa to different mothers, in lawful wedlock. 

“Oluwadamilare ‘Dammy’ Adesanmi was born in wedlock to Pius and Oluwatosin in Ottawa. That makes Dammy a bona-fide Canadian citizen. It is disdainful to make it appear as if Pius is survived by one child. In our culture and before the law, children born in lawful wedlock have equal status before the law and society.

Indeed since our world crashed with Pius last March, nobody has deemed it fit to officially contact his family in any official capacity. If the airlines whose negligence led to the untimely death of our son has made contact with anyone on our behalf, it was incumbent on them to ensure that we were duly carried along by way of official information and that our consent is sought as to how our son’s remains would be interred.

“We would like to place it on record that neither the airline nor anyone else bothered to seek our consent or approval before the purported ceremony in Ottawa. We refuse to believe that this was not done deliberately to maximize the pain, the suffering and the agony of our matriarch” he said

The wife of the deceased is yet to reply to this so we are waiting for any reply from her ends.
