I Won’t Drink Water Used To Bath My Late Husband, Widow Cries Out

A 34-year-old widow, Mrs Chioma Asomugha from Ubahuekem in Ihiala area of Anambra, has raised alarm that her in-laws were forcing her to drink water used in bathing her late husband’s corpse.Chioma, the widow, confirmed the report in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Awka.

She alleged that the brothers of her late husband, Charles, said she must drink the water to prove that she was not responsible for her husband’s death, but that she would not do that.

Chioma said that she and her late husband lived peacefully in Ojo area of Lagos before his death.“I have four children with my late husband and we lived at Ajangbadi, Ojo area of Lagos before his demise.“The burial is fixed for Monday June 14, but since we came home for the burial, the relatives of my husband forced me out of my matrimonial home.“They insisted that before I will be allowed to come in that I will drink the water used in bathing my late husband’s corpse,” she claimed.

Chioma said she took the matter to National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Awka as well as her Oraifite people with a view to resolving the matter.Mrs Laura Ugwuanyi, Coordinator of NHRC in Anambra, confirmed the report, describing it as obnoxious.She said efforts made to handle the matter did not yield positive results as the family members were not cooperating.Chief Gerald Nnabugwu, a community leader in the area, told NAN that the leadership of the community was looking into the matter.

Mr C-Don Adinuba, state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment also promised to intervene in the matter. When contacted, Mr. Okey Chukwu, President General of Ubahuekem community said he was in a meeting and promised to call back, but as at the time of this report, his phone was switched off.

You don’t need anybody’s gospel here.
These are the same people who attend almost every church service and masses and listen to the same gospel you are talking about.

What they need is common sense and civilization

Man has appointed himself judge over fellow man. A man cant even drink his own bathe water let alone drinking that of a corpse. Imagine the traumatic condition a poor bereaved widow is being subjected to for the sake of superstition.

Just because a demon goes to church doesn't make it a saint or an angel.

Claim one: Jesus is often mentioned in church.

Claim two: If demon hears the name of Jesus Christ, it trembles and vanishes.

Your claim: A demon goes to church doesn’t change it

so what is now the essence of the church the demon entered when what you people do claim is “if a demon hears the name of Jesus, it will tremble and vanish”?

That means you people are lying!

Just hold up a minute . Now according to your narrowed-minded opinion, demons are in a church, correct? Do you know that demons are everywhere, and that it is left for you to decide if you want them or not?

Undetected medical problems. It's a major killer in Nigeria today.

Lifestyle, diet etc.

Life expectancy in Nigeria is really low.

When last did you go for a proper medical check up?

You don’t need any assumption, illiterates don’t know how to read or write.

It is certainly evident that you are mentally deficient if you can’t answer the question
