    I thought initially they said they're burying her in Lagos?

    @1976AD, yea they said so, but her husband is from Awka, and its really against cultural norms for her to be buried outside. The only case where a married woman from that side is buried outside her husband's compound is if they are separated/wahala dey or maybe if she has no male children. Even the latter usually isnt the norm not to bury outside.
    Probably after much consideration and prob talk with family, they decided to bury her in Awka, especially given the fact that she had 4 male sons for her husband.
