The burial was preceded by a funeral mass at the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Illah.

In a sermon, the parish priest Rev. Fr Dennis Arinze reminded the people that death is an inevitable end for all mortals.

“When we consider his age, the circumstances surrounding his death and also the fact that he lost his wife few months ago, it is indeed pathetic and worrisome,” Arinze said.
He urged the people to be steadfast in their faith and believe in God, saying that death was not the end of life for true Christians but the beginning of another in eternity.

The priest added, “As Christians, if we die today, we die for God, if we also live, we live for God.
“So my brethren, a strong faith in God should be our source of consolation in death because there is life after death.”
Arinze, who eulogised the departed for his time and achievements, also urged the people to live a life of service, saying the late former Super Eagles captain served his nation whole heartedly until his death.

He said, “As a compatriot, father, brother, uncle, Keshi has made his contribution to his nation and the game of football. He lived a life of service that is worthy of emulation.”

Keshis’s colleagues in attendance for his burial were Peter Rufai, Mutiu Adepoju, Henry Nwosu, Friday Ekpo, Uche Okechukwu, Victor Ikpeba, Alloy Agu, Edema Fuludu and Taribo West.

Keshi died on June 8 in Benin city, Edo State
