A pre-burial service was held on Friday at the Tema Community Centre in Accra.

The burial service is expected to take place on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at Keta in the Volta region.

His remains will be interred at the Vui government cemetery in the Volta region. James Lutterodt, until his demise, was a second-year student at the University of Ghana.
