JP Clark Buried At Midnight In His Island Home Town

By Ebi Perekeme

The remains of renowned emeritus professor of literature and poet, Professor John Pepper Clark, was committed to mother earth at exactly 11.30p.m., on Thursday in his island country home in Kiagbodo town, Delta State, after a brief lying in state for few family members.

Clark was buried after few words of prayers by Pastor Ituah Ighodalo represented by Pastor Jolomi Guoti and Pastor Ken Okochu of Trinity House, while surrounded by his widow, children and few family members at the graveside near his parlour, which he had long prepared.

True to his last will, Clark was buried within three days of his transition and was not kept in mortuary or taken to any place of worship for funeral service.

The reknown late literary giant was given a peaceful burial also in accordance to his last wish, as only few family members were allowed into the house during the lying in state.

Late JP Clark’s corpse earlier landed Kiagbodo main town at about 8:48pm, before it was conveyed in a wooden boat to his house at JP Clark Creek Island in the outskirt of the community.
