The burial rites were conducted by a team of Imams from across Igalaland.

Controversy had trailed the burial of the former governor when rumour filtered into town that he had resurrected. A prophet had earlier promised to revive Audu to life.

There was mild drama between the prophet and members of the Audu family, who had refused to let him in. The youths of Ogbonicha broke the door to the room where Audu was laid to allow the prophet gain access.

However, the prophet failed to resurrect Audu, prompting the youths to go berserk, threatening to kill the prophet.

The burial was well attended as scores of the who-is-who in Nigerian politics as well as members of the business community were in Ogbonicha to give their last respect to the departed hero.
There was an ocean of tears when his body was lowered into the grave.
