Recall that backlashed trailed an old poster which emerged online after the word ‘husband’ was omitted in the tributes segment.

Junior Pope’s family later said the viral poster was not authorised.

This was corrected in the new poster as the tributes revealed Jnr Pope as a son, brother, husband, father and grandson.

According to the new poster, Junior Pope will buried on May 17, 2025, in his home town in Enugu.
