Junior Pope: Body of sound engineer exhumed, reburied in home town

The body of Precious Ofurum, the sound engineer who perished in the boat accident that also killed Nollywood star Junior Pope, has been exhumed and buried in Rivers State.

Precious, Junior Pope, and three other crew members were killed in a boat mishap on the River Niger near Asaba, Delta State, on April 10.

They were on their way to a movie site.

Precious was buried by the riverside after the accident since his family was unable to complete the standards for transportation back home.

However, Precious’ mother pleaded with the Rivers State Governor, Sim Fubara, to assist in transporting her son’s remains back home for proper burial.

However, in a video shared on his Instagram page, Movie Producer, Stanley Nwoke, showed people preparing the remains of the late sound engineer inside a white coffin for the trip to Rivers.

The filmmaker said Precious’ family, alongside members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, attended his remains’ exhumation on Tuesday.

Stanley also shared another video of the sound engineer being laid to rest in his hometown in Rivers.
