The funeral is scheduled for Saturday 15th February 2020 and it was gathered that the rain concentrated only in the Governor’s community and pulled down the structure on Monday.

A member of the community, who pleaded anonymity, told newsmen that he had suspected some mysterious sabotage and had earlier cautioned planners of the event to engage the services of a rain-maker.

He said, “How do you explain a rain that circulated within a particular area? I had told the planners of this burial that not everyone would be happy to see a successful burial of the Governor’s father.

“I earlier suggested the need to engage a traditional rain-maker so that in a situation like this, such mysterious rain would have been diverted to nearby communities.”

Some people had said they suspected the make-shift structure may have been constructed with sub-standard materials.
