After being blamed for her husband’s death, a widow and her relatives were shot at his funeral.
Last year, Benita Okwuibe lost her husband Onyedika Jeremiah, 33, to an illness known as “elephantiasis.”
When the tragedy struck, the couple had only been married for a little over a year.
Benita, who is from Enugu State, was shot with her mother and co-wife at Onyedika Jeremiah’s funeral on Thursday, January 13 in Anambra state.
Benita’s mother and co-wife perished, according to a Facebook friend, while Benita is in critical condition in the hospital.
The friend claimed Benita was shot because her late husband’s relatives blamed her for his death.
Benita’s Facebook posts show her mourning her late husband after his death last December.
She shared photos of his feet, swollen and scabbed, before his death as she mourned him.
However, his family allegedly blamed her for his death and tried to eliminate her and her family.
