Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has issued an order for the exhumation of the late makeup artiste, Abigail Edith Frederick, for a proper burial in her home State.

The 24-year-old, a native of Akwa Ibom State, tragically drowned alongside actor Junior Pope and others in a boat accident while returning from a movie shoot.

Initially, due to financial constraints, Abigail’s family buried her by the riverside without the customary rituals for her body to be brought home.

Governor Umo Eno, unaware of these circumstances until recently, expressed condolences to Abigail’s family through his Chief Press Secretary, Ekerete Udoh.

In a press release, the Governor announced his decision to have Abigail’s body exhumed and repatriated to her family in Akwa Ibom State for a dignified and proper burial.

The statement reads,

“His Excellency, Pastor Umo Eno, Governor, Akwa Ibom State, is aware of the tragic boat mishap, which occurred a few days ago, on River Niger, involving some Nollywood actors and other supporting crew members while on a trip to a movie location.

“One of the victims of that accident, Ms. Abigael Edith Frederick, was a quintessential example of our young people who have harkened to our clarion call for them to Arise and shine. She was a 24 years old graduate of Theatre Arts, who had found her passion as a make-up artiste.

“We are deeply saddened by her painful passing and on behalf of the Government and people of Akwa Ibom State, we sympathize with her family, the Nollywood community and her friends and colleagues over this sad loss.

“We have also followed and read the reportage, especially on the social media platforms surrounding her burial and wish to state categorically that, government was not informed of the circumstances that led to her burial.

“His Excellency, Governor Umo Eno, has consequently directed that her body be brought back to her family for a proper and decent burial. As the famous theme song of the Liverpool Football Club goes, the bereaved family will not “walk alone”. May her soul rest in peace.”
