PHOTOS: Kofi Awoonor’s body flown home

The mortal remains of Professor Kofi Awoonor arrived in Accra yesterday. The body was accompanied by some family members including his son, Afetsi Awoonor who was also a victim of last weekend’s attack in Kenya.

A huge crowd of members of the general publis, as well as some government officials, family members and dignitaries were also at the Kotoka International Airport to receive the remains.

A short ceremony was held at the grounds before he was taken to a private funeral home in Sakumono, Tema.

The final funeral rites will be held on November 9, in Weta in the Volta region, officials say.

Below are some amateur television screen shots of yesterday’s ceremony
