The remains of actress Moji Olaiya arrived Muritala Mohammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, late on Tuesday, from Toronto, Canada.
The corpse was received by family, friends and colleagues of the actress.
Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), paid for the air freight of her corpse and the transportation of her baby daughter to Nigeria.
Her eldest daughter, Adunola, 18, had insisted that her mother’s corpse should be brought back to Nigeria.
“She must be brought back. I don’t care what anybody says, I just want my mother’s body,” she had said.
Entertainers such as Fathia Balogun, Bimbo Oshin, Pasuma, Queen Salawa Abeni and several others poured encomiums on the actress/producer during a night of tributes held on Tuesday.
The event took place at the Blue Roof event centre of LTV8 in Ikeja.
Olaiya died in a Canadian hospital of cardiac arrest on May 7, three months after she was successfully delivered of her second daughter.
