Item Union called on all sons and daughters, particularly those resident in Lagos, to come out in their numbers to honour their departed patron. All friends and well-wishers of Item people are also cordially invited to the event.
The late Elder Ogwo will be buried in his hormetown, Amaokwe Item on Saturday, October 30, 2021.
