The late Odo, who married 59 wives with over 300 children and grandchildren, died in the early hours of Tuesday after a brief illness.
Mr Emeka Odo, one of the sons who confirmed the death of his father to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in their family house said that the father died at the age of 74.
Odo said the burial arrangement for his father was already in progress in compliance with his father’s instruction to the wives and children that his remains should not be deposited in the mortuary when confirmed dead, but should be buried as soon as possible.
He said, “Yes my father popularly known as King of Satan is dead; he died on Tuesday morning as he had been sick for the past three weeks.
“We are having a family meeting to perfect arrangement for his burial since he instructed us not to put his body in the mortuary.”
He lamented that the death of his father was a big blow as he had a loving and caring father in spite of a large number of family members.
“Since this morning my father died kinsmen, friends and well-wishers have been trooping in shock and surprise to come and sympathise with our family,” he said. (NAN)
