The Funeral service for late Henrietta Emumeakpor-Kosoko slated for
Regina Mundi,Mushin,Lagos has been cancelled.Not only 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.”
