The burial of late Nollywood actress, Henrietta Kosoko, which was scheduled to hold on Friday has been canceled.
Sources were quoted as saying that the family of the late actress does not recognize Jide Kosoko as her husband, hence their decision to take charge of her funeral.
NetNg quoted a source as saying:
“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 to the village with her to do the needful. Because of this, her family doesn’t see him as their in-law”
It was also learnt that the family did not inform Jide Kosoko of his wife’s death until he saw the news online.
According to the new plan, the late actress’ remains will now be moved to her hometown in Delta State on Saturday for burial.
Her wake keep was held yesterday, June 9, 2016 at LTV 8, Agidingbi, Ikeja with family, friends and celebrities in attendance.
