Late Henrietta Kosoko's family hijacks corpse, says Jide Kosoko is not her husband

The biological family of Henrietta Kosoko has seized her remains, alleging that her husband Henrietta Kosoko never paid for her dowry and had abandoned her before the late Nollywood actress’ death.

Henrietta was formerly scheduled to be buried at her husband’s place in Ikeja, Lagos but the family says they are taking her remains to Delta State where she’ll be buried.
A relative of the deceased in a statement said:

“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.

“He met her here in Lagos and they got married and never made any attempt to go the village with her to do the needful. Because of this, her family doesn’t see him as their in-law.

“Her family has kicked against our initial plans to bury her here in Lagos. They said it’s against their culture. So we had no choice than to obey want they want.”
