The 11 female members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who perished in a car crash on Saturday, February 14, will be buried on Saturday, February 21.

The funeral arrangements for the deceased women were announced by the Bayelsa State Government after a meeting with families of the victims.

A service of songs will hold at the Bayelsa Cultural Centre along Hospital Road in Yenagoa after which the victims will be buried in a mass grave.

The state government and the families of the victims decided to conduct a mass burial because the corpses had been burnt beyond recognition and a pathologist informed them that it would take six months to complete DNA testing.

The women were burnt to death along the East-West Road in Rivers State after paying a visit to First Lady, Patience Jonathan in Okrika.
