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. He met her here in Lagos and they got married and never made any attempt to go to the village with her to do the needful. Because of this, her family doesn’t see him as their in-law,” a source told NetNg.
