Hundreds of sympathisers including government officials and family members converged at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) to welcome the mortal remains of the late Komla Dumor, Monday.
The mortal remains of the ace broadcaster who passed away on January 18, 2014, arrived aboard a British Airways flight at about 8:30 in a casket draped in a black kente cloth.
Komla Afeke Dumor’s untimely death which was and is still a shock to many in Ghana and across the world was attributed to a cardiac arrest.
Following his demise, many tributes have been pouring in from all corners indicating how the former BBC broadcaster was loved and cherished.
Even though there was no wailing or shedding of tears at the KIA, you could feel a solemn and a sad atmosphere with a lot of people hurting on the inside.
Pall-bearers from the Lashibi Funeral Home and Crematorium received the body from the aircraft and handed it over to the Aflao Royal Guards and the Paramount Chief of Aflao Traditional Area, Togbe Amenya Fiti V for traditional rites to be performed.
This was followed by prayers from the Accra Catholic Archdiocese led by Rev. Fr Samuel Filton-Mensah.
