According to a report by Punch Metro, the family of a girl, Confidence Nwanma, allegedly killed by her boyfriend has declared that the killer boyfriend must marry the corpse of the deceased in line with the tradition of the family.
Nwanma was allegedly stabbed to death last week by her boyfriend Saliu Ladayo at Oshinle area of Akure, the Ondo State capital following a disagreement that ensued between them. The alleged killer has, however, been arrested by the men of the Ondo State Police Command.
The deceased’s father, Mr. Jude Nwanma, who spoke with journalists at their residence at Oke Aro, Akure, said the traditional rites must be performed in their hometown in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State before burying the late daughter.
Nwanma explained that failure to perform the traditional rites would bring calamity to the family of Ladayo.
He said, “In our place, it is mandatory that the man must marry the corpse of our daughter killed in cold blood. We must perform the normal traditional rites by taking the corpse to our village where the marriage would take place.
