“Fast rising Nigerian singer, Margaret Mary Oluwatoyin Ejiro Joseph, popularly known as Zara Gretti passed away on March 28, 2014 at the age of 28, after losing her battle with Multiple Sclerosis. The controversy about how she was abandoned by several of her colleagues in the music industry is no longer news.

The way a lot of music celebrities all took to social media to famz, eulogize and send condolence messages after she passed on when most of them never lifted a finger to help keep her alive is unsavory enough on its own. But, NET can reveal exclusively that there’s a development that’s even much more disturbing than the way she was abandoned before she passed on. In preparation for the one year anniversary of her death, NET paid a visit to the Ikoyi Cemetery, Lagos where Zara was buried on Thursday, March 19, 2015, and the following shocking discoveries were made: Cemetery register confirms Zara’s burial: This reporter visited Ikoyi Cemetery office, Lagos.

After getting the details of the actual place her remains were interred, an extensive search of the cemetery records and register revealed that Zara Gretti was indeed, buried at the Ikoyi Cemetery on Friday, April 4, 2014. According to the register, her grave was in Section five of the cemetery. Curiosity was fully pricked though, when the attendant, identified as the secretary of the facility who attended to this reporter asked absent-mindedly: ‘Do you know if this was the third or fourth time that particular grave was used?’ The quick response was that I was not around when she was brought for burial; hence there was no way I could know about that…. has the full story.
