Trouble! As Jide Kosoko's In-Laws Reject Lagos Burial For Late Wife

Amidst the burial preparations and at the service of songs held in honor of Jide Kosoko’s wife, Henrietta Kosoko at LTV 8, Agidingbi Ikeja, Lagos went sour when her family members announced to everyone that burial plans for the movie thespian in Lagos was cancelled. 

Late Henrietta Kosoko was scheduled to be buried in at the Atan Cementry, Yaba while the church service was to take place at Regina Mundi Catholic church, Mushin Lagos. All plans were changed on Thursday, June 9, as the service of songs.

Adding to 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 reporters, 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.

The family of the late actress does not recognize Jide Kosoko as her husband, hence their decision to take charge of her funeral.

‘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.

“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.

“I learnt the issue didn’t go down well with Jide Kosoko but there’s nothing he could do to resist that.”

However, late Henrietta Kosoko’s family disclosed that in Delta state their culture does not permit their daughter’s to be buried outside the state especially when proper marriage rites wasn’t done before her death. 

However, many of her colleagues supported this idea because Henrietta months back had a misunderstanding with her husband which has made the two of them live apart from each other until the point of death. 

Due to this, the remains of Henrietta would be taken to Delta state on Friday, June 10 alongside family members, friends and loved ones.
