A 34-year-old widow, Mrs Chioma Asomugha from Ubahuekem in Ihiala area of Anambra, has raised alarm that her in-laws were forcing her to drink water used in bathing her late husband’s corpse.
Chioma, the widow, confirmed the report in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Awka.
She alleged that the brothers of her late husband, Charles, said she must drink the water to prove that she was not responsible for her husband’s death, but that she would not do that.
Chioma said that she and her late husband lived peacefully in Ojo area of Lagos before his death.“I have four children with my late husband and we lived at Ajangbadi, Ojo area of Lagos before his demise.
The burial is fixed for Monday June 14, but since we came home for the burial, the relatives of my husband forced me out of my matrimonial home.“
They insisted that before I will be allowed to come in that I will drink the water used in bathing my late husband’s corpse,” she claimed.
