KIAGBODO— THE remains of renowned poet and literature professor emeritus, Professor John Pepper Clark, arrived at his home in Kiagbodo, Delta State, Thursday in a blue coffin.
The dead body of the late JP Clark landed in the main town of Kiagbodo at 8:48 p.m., before being transported by wooden boat to his home on JP Clark Creek Inland on the outskirts of the community.
The coffin was carried by youth from the Delta state government ambulance community who brought the literary icon from Asaba International Airport.
His body was deposited in his compound before being buried with some members of the family, since journalists were not allowed to enter the house.
The literary icon passed away on Tuesday, October 13.
The poet is the younger brother of former Federal Information Commissioner and South-South Leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark.
