Late President Mills on state drive

By GNA

Accra, Aug. 10, GNA - The body of late President John Evans Atta Mills is on its final journey to be buried at the Geese Park adjacent to the Independence Square where a two-hour burial service was held Friday.

The casket was placed on a gun carriage at 1320 hours as the late commander-in-chief is given a burial with full military honours.

As the gun carriage moved slowly out of the Independence Square and drove onto the High Street and through some principal streets of Accra, tens of thousands of people dressed in red and black who thronged the Square and lined the streets waved miniature flags while others drummed and sang. Some mourners wailed uncontrollably.

A number of pigeons were also released as a sign of peace for President Mills who was called the “King of Peace.”

As the cortege went on a state drive, thousands marched along, with a “Borborbor" traditional musical group playing and walking along the casket. A helicopter hovered above the cortege.

Thousands have also moved to the Geese park area where the late president will be buried to catch a final glimpse.

The burial service for the late President Mills was attended by at least a dozen heads of state, and dignitaries from many countries across the globe.
