WEIRD NEWS: Man Weds Dead Wife In Ebonyi State (find Out Why)

A man, Onyema Orji was at the weekend in Nwakpu, Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, forced to ‘officially’ marry his dead wife, Blessing so as to posses the children born for him by the deceased. Orji had divorced Blessing on the ground that her mother was interfering in their marriage, forcing Blessing to marry another man, one Chukwuma. The former marriage between Blessing and Orji produced children including twins; while the present union failed to produce any child. Blessing later died.

But there was drama during the burial when the first husband, Onyema Orji brought items for her burial and wanted to take the children born for him by the late Blessing, but was told by Blessing’s family that he could bury her but could not take possession of the children as he had not performed the traditional marriage rite that will empower him to claim the children.

This forced Onyema to perform the traditional marriage rite on Blessing who was lying motionless inside casket awaiting the burial. He later performed the traditional marriage rite and wedded Blessing and subsequently left with his children.

@ibukun dont say dose things again culture is culture we must obey it,dis are d kind of things dat cos set back for most people so let us follow d due process

Ommyl Ibukun

@rose forget bout tradition... ! that particular tradition is stupid!!.obey what??...well thats for u though...

Robinson Emeke Ikebueze

The culture was designed for stupid and irresponsible men who have no respect for the family of their wife. Every family wants to be respected and the members want you to do the needful traditionally before taking their daughter or sister as your wife. If you fail to do the needful and your wife die, then you should expect a similar treatment metted to the man talked about in the post. Credit to the Igbos. I love the tradition.

Opone Ife Stella

It is a big lesson 4 every man, do d normal tin b4 u start calling a lady ur wife..........gbam!!! If not sametin wil happen 2 u...........gbam!!!!!

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

It had to be done. There is no way to get around this. If you like carry soldier nothing go happen. He didn't have legit claims to those kids cos the family don't recognize him. Complain about the tradition and its backwardness but it is what it is. He can't claim kids he doesn't have backing over.

Rose Uranta Ann

If d man refuse to do it he should b ready to face dis possible things one,he will not hv accses to d children,two d children will not bear his name finaly if d children wants to prove storborn, by meeting dia father,dia late mother family will lay a curse on dem which is ver dengerous in future so to avoid dis problem he must do wat is rit

Rose Uranta Ann

Ommyl Ibukun

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina
