A community source, who disclosed the possibility of the burial, said: “I don’t really know, but it cannot be very far from the truth.

It was gathered that J. P. Clark had his grave dug at his Kiagbodo creek home while he was alive.

The renowned literary artist died in the early hours of Tuesday in Lagos. He was 85.
