PHOTOS: President Jonathan weeps at brother’s burial

President Goodluck Jonathan could not hold back his emotions at the burial rites for his younger brother, Meni Innocent Jonathan, who died 20 November, as he burst into tears.

Part of the rites was the Service of Songs held for Meni at the Dame Patience Jonathan Square, Otuoke today. It attracted notable government officials, including Senate President David Mark. Representatives of Nollywood were there too. But a notable absentee was vice-president Namadi Sambo, who kept away to prepare for the wedding of his two daughters in Kaduna Saturday.

Meni Jonathan will be buried on Saturday after a commendation service at the St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, Otuoke at 10 am.

Here are some photographs of the Otueke event today.
