10 touching photos from James Ocholi burial that will make you cry

The funeral of Barrister James Enonjo Ocholi, his wife Blessing and son Joshua may have come and gone. But the memories of such a solemn occasion cannot be easily forgotten.

A man obviously well-loved by his people, James Ocholi even in death, dragged virtually all Igala people out from their homes who trooped to the Abocho community primary school to witness the event.

It was crying, wailing and lamentation galore. The people were inconsolable. Children, youths, the old, the clergy, community leaders and political associates of the late Ocholi were grieving.
