Father insists man who killed pregnant daughter must marry her corpse
Late Ozigie Betty Nwovueze’s father has insisted that the man who killed his pregnant daughter, must marry her corpse before burial.
According to the father of the deceased, Mr.Wilfred Nwovueze, the man who killed his pregnant daughter must marry her corpse and also perform the full traditional marriage rites which the custom and tradition of Ndele people in Emohua local Government area demands.
The deceased’s father who pleaded with security agencies to ensure that justice is done in the killing of his daughter, told journalists in Rivers State;
“I don’t want any problem. That girl is my daughter and what I want the Police to do is to allow this J-Boy of a man or his family members to marry my daughter before they bury her.
“All the rites that are due any girl of marriageable age in my community will be done so that there will be no calamity.”
This is coming after we reported that the man at the center of the murder incident identified as Prince Uwabie a.k.a J-Boy, 34, has a history of physically abusing the deceased who is his girlfriend. The suspect who assaulted the deceased on December 2nd until she slumped and died in his house, was nabbed after he hurriedly dug a grave inside his one room apartment and buried her.
