The reception team was led by the immediate-past Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, who assured that Akunyili will be given a burial befitting her status and fame.
Also at the airport was Mrs. Uche Ekunife.

Akunyili’s body was flown to Nigeria in a private aircraft from India. It was accompanied by her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili and her younger brother, Dr. Anayo Edemobi.

The remains were subsequently conveyed to the National Hospital mortuary in Abuja in an Ambulance written Nigerian-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital.

Obi said the next thing was for a programme for her burial to be drawn up, assuring several stakeholders will make their inputs to the programme in close collaboration with her family.
