The Archbishop of Onitsha and Metropolitan of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province, Most Rev Valerian Okeke presided over the mass with other four priests concelebrating.
The Archbishop condoled with the entire family and described the death of Chinedu as a big trial moment for the family and urged them not to mourn as people without faith.
According to the Archbishop,it is not the age one lived that matters but what one achieved in his life time.
Fr Odukwe pointed out that in many cases and particularly in history,many achievers in history concluded their earthly journeys early in life adding that God in his infinite wisdom called the late Chinedu home after concluding his earthly assignment.
He drew analogy on the vanity of life when he pointed out that neither wealth,power or money can give life but that God almighty gives life and takes as he wishes.
One of those who arrived early for the mass are the former Secretary to the Federal Government,Chief Anyim Pius Anyim,Anambra State PDP chairman,Chief Ken Emeakayi,former Onitsha South Local government Chairman,Chief Ejidike, the Chief of Staff,Princess Stella Oduah Foundation,Princess Nwaka Ononuju,Director of Stella Oduah Campaign Organisation,Chief Pandola Okwuosa,and many others.
