The family of the late Remilekun Toyosi Meshioye, 41, a Nigerian citizen who died aboard Egypt Air on September 4, 2023, in Cairo on her way to London for studies, has announced her burial plans with the repatriation of the body back to Lagos on Wednesday.




This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Head of Media, Public Relations and Protocols of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, via their official X handle on Monday, October 16, 2023.




The statement read, “According to the programme being coordinated by her sister, Lola Olaniyi-Alabi, the body will arrive in Lagos on Wednesday, October 18, from Cairo.

“Thereafter, there will be a Service of songs at the Winners Chapel Ogba, Lagos, on Thursday, October 19, by 4 p.m., while the burial will hold at Matori Cemetery Ladipo, near Oshodi Bus Terminus, Lagos, at 10 a.m. on Friday, October 20.”




It further read that Olaniyi-Alabi said the family decided to repatriate the body of the late Meshioye back home for burial following the refusal of Egypt Air management to accept full responsibility for what happened to its passenger.




She said the family had written a series of petitions to Egypt Air and its management but has refused to even condole them up to this moment, let alone accept the responsibility of bringing the corpse back in line with global aviation rules.




Similarly, the Egypt Air Management has also refused to respond to a letter written to it by NIDCOM to seek clarification on the matter and do the needful for the family.





The PUNCH reports that Meshioye’s journey from Lagos to London aboard Egypt Air took a tragic turn when she reportedly fell sick mid-flight and died in the hospital.
