Thousands of people gathered to sing, pray and celebrate the life and achievements of one of Africa's, Nigeria's and the world's greatest authors - Chinua Achebe,
At the Anglican church of St Philips in Ogidi, Anambra state family, friends and politicians came to mark their respect to the author of such books as "Things Fall Apart" and "Man of the People"
Perhaps Chinua Achebe's most famous work - "Things Fall Apart" sold 10 million copies and is often in the world's top 100 English novels.
He died at the age of 82 in the United States where he lived most of his adult life after a car accident in Nigeria in 1990. His last book "There was a country" was about the Biafran Civil War.
He is often regarded as the "godfather" of african literature.
