Drama as Henrietta’s family stops daughter’s burial over unpaid dowry

By Seun Agboola, Lagos

The planned burial of Henrietta Kosoko has been put on hold by her family members who are angry with her husband, Jide.

Specifically, they are accusing him of failure to fulfil all his marital obligations to the family while she was alive.

The funeral of late Henrietta Emumeakpor-Kosoko slated for Regina Mundi, Mushin, Lagos has been suspended and her remains will also not be buried in Atan Cemetery, Yaba, Lagos as earlier released planned.

According to a member of the burial committee who spoke to newsmen, the reason for the cancellation was not unconnected with the fact that 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 added.
