Offor who died in Febuary this year, at Emeka Okafor Foundation Centre,
Oraifite, Anambra State.
According to Sir Offor, “my father served the Nigerian Police
meritoriously and retired after 35 years of service, so nobody will be
allowed to come here and mess up his funeral.
Security arrangements have been put in place to deal with miscreants.”
“Pickpockets would often sew uniform and infiltrate the funerals of rich
persons in the State and steal people’s valuables, including telephone
and money, but we are waiting for them in Oraifite, that day may be
their last that will land them in prison, to be fore warned is to be
fore armed.” Chief

ceremony by the former Presidents of the Senate, Chief Ken Nnamani and
Senstor Anyim Pius Anyim, while many people from all walks of life will
have promised to come.
“My father was a very nice man, he gave me so much encouragement and
everything you see me doing was initiated by him. He is a passionate
philanthropist who would always like to see smiles on the faces of
everyone that came in contact with him and I must tell you that most of
the guys you see me hang out with were introduced to me by him.
