No More Lagos Burial for Henrietta Kosoko as Family Does Not Recognize Jide Kosoko As Her Husband
The Funeral service for late Henrietta Emumeakpor-Kosoko slated for Regina Mundi, Mushin, Lagos has been cancelled.
Not only that, her remains will also not be interred at Atan Cemetery, Yaba, Lagos as earlier released by the burial committee.
According to one of the members of the committee who spoke to encomium.ng under the condition of anonymity, the reason for the cancellation of the Lagos funeral arrangement was not unconnected with the fact that the Henrietta’s family from Delta state insisted that their daughter must not be buried outside.
“It’s true that Henrietta’s remains will no longer be buried in Lagos. Her siblings and other members of her family have insisted they’re not burying her in Lagos as earlier planned by Jide Kosoko.
‘Henrietta is Urhobo woman from Delta state, where they cherish their culture. Jide Kosoko didn’t go to her family house in Delta to pay her dowry,’ the source said.
This decision however didn’t go down well with Jide Kososko but there is nothing he can do about it
