The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. Monday. University officials said Agu's family members from Bakersfield as well as other family members from Nigeria will attend the service. A candlelight service for Agu was held at the Lisa and Douglas Goldman Plaza, adjacent to Cal's football stadium, on Feb. 12.
