Family hijacks funeral plans from Jide Kosoko

Jide Kosoko and late wife, Henrietta.

According to sources, 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. 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.

It was also revealed that when Henrietta passed on, the family did not call to inform Jide Kosoko of her death as he got to know when the news surfaced online.

The late actress’ remains will now be moved to her hometown in Delta State tomorrow morning for burial.

Her wake keep was held yesterday, June 9, 2016 at LTV 8, Agidingbi, Ikeja with family, friends and celebrities in attendance.

Present at the solemn service was Toyin Aimakhu, Mercy Aigbe, Yomi Fash-lanso, Foluke Daramola, Desmond Elliot, Adeniyi Johnson and others.
