June 23, 2017 – Ritualist Man Interrupts Wife’s Burial, Throws Her Corpse On The Ground In Nnewi Anambra State
A man popularly called “Who Know Man” caused a scene at the burial ceremony of one of his wives in Nnewi, Anambra state today when he suddenly interrupted the burial ceremony because he didn’t approve it.
The suspected ritualist didn’t bury his first wife when she died in 2014, he left her corpse at the mortuary and paid to keep her corpse there till 2019.
His act raised a suspicion that he might have used his first wife for ritual.
When his second wife passed away, he told the family of the deceased of his plan to bury her.
However, he was told that in Igbo tradition and custom, he was supposed to bury his first wife who had been in mortuary since 2014 but he ignored their warning and scheduled the burial of his second wife for today in the village.
The relatives of his first wife shocked him when they went to the mortuary to claim the body of his first wife and prepared her for a befitting burial.
Just like we see in typical Nollywood movie, Who Know Man suddenly interrupted the lying in state and pushed his first wife’s coffin on the ground, the coffin broke and as the body of the deceased hit the ground, guests scampered for safety as it is seen as a taboo.
Security operatives were immediately called in to put the irate man under check as the family of the deceased forcefully took her remains to the grave meant to bury the second wife and buried the first wife there.
According to CFR Magazine, The action of the relations of the deceased resulted in a free for all fight which was later quenched by the police.
