The burial ceremony of late actress, Henrietta Kosoko, earlier scheduled for Friday, June 10, 2016 (today), has been cancelled.
This is as a result of a disagreement between family of the actress in Delta State and her husband, Jide Kosoko, who is a veteran actor.
It was gathered that the family of the deceased claimed Jide Kosoko never properly married their daughter. He was said to have never paid her dowry as expected by tradition.
Also, the family said according to their culture in Urhobo, Delta State, the woman cannot be buried outside but her ancestral home.
A member of the burial committee who spoke to reporters, 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.
‘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.’
Henrietta was supposed to be buried at the Atan Cemetery in Yaba, Lagos.
