Readers say it is wrong to inherit a woman

A whopping 91% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters say no to wife's inheritance.

A really sad woman

A worried reader, Dooshima who is about to be inherited by her late husband's brother, sent in this letter:

"My name is Dooshima and I am from Benue State. to a young man who is from one of the Eastern states of Nigeria for six years with a child before the cold hands of death snatched Uzor from me.

His death raised many eyebrows because he fell sick after he traveled home and laid the foundation of his building.

According to what Uzor told me, one of his uncles was not happy with him, claiming the land he wanted to build belonged to him (the uncle), and wanted his own son to build on the land.

Uzor insisted he must build on the land and when the man's son was ready, there were other lands in the family for him to build on.

Shortly after he came back, Uzor fell sick and the ailment defied all medical attention and we had to take him to his place but he died shortly after our arrival.

Immediately he was buried, the family called a meeting and insisted I must marry his older brother so that I will remain in the family. They told me it was their tradition and failure to do so is total calamity.

But how can I marry a man who is as old as my own father with four other wives? I even heard that he took over two of the women from his late brothers.

Please I need urgent advice on what to do?"

The teaser for the day was:

How Nigeria voted:

9% - Yes, it is good so that she can be well looked after

91% - No, it is a bad idea
