See Gobe!!!Man Forced To Marry Dead Wife In Ebonyi

The family of a deceased woman has suspended her burial rites until her ‘husband’ who she was cohabiting with performs her wedding rites. The woman Chinyere Mbam was been bitten to death by a snake while returning from the wake-keep of her friend, Oge Ogashi who passed on.

She was taken to a traditional healing home in the area for treatment and thereafter back to the husband’s home where she gave up the ghost when she could not respond to the treatment.

Her uncle, Ishiali Ikwe confirmed her death.

But the deceased’s family have mandated his ‘husband’ Stephen Mbam of Enyi Igwe village Ezzainyimagu community in Izzi local government area of Ebonyi State, to carry out her traditional marriage rites before she is buried. It was gathered that the woman had been co-habiting with Stephen for three years and their relationship produced a child even though he did not fulfill her marriage rites.

According to the Uncle, the family has put the burial on hold until Mbam performs traditional marriage on the deceased. He further said that Mbam’s family, in line with the tradition of the land, have scheduled a date for payment of the bride price to be preceded by the wedding



  1. When and where is the marriage rites gonna take place? Can’t miss d jollof rice nd oda foods…….RIP to d dead wife.

  2. if I condemn it what my own that people don’t value, well for the family to accept it that means that the tradition is well rooted in them.

  3. They really want to impose the ‘widower’ title on him.

    Oh well, he shld do as demanded, cos I’m sure he pays before eating in “mama put’s canteen”

  4. Is this story true? if is true, how can a death woman put the ring to the man? because i don”t think the marriage will be complete with the woman given the ring to the man.

  5. in western world this can happen when there is love between the two. in any case it has no legal meaning in Nigeria due to constitution. this camouflaged weeding do not solve the problem between the too families.

  6. Jesus wept. In Ebonyi state, does a man lose paternity of his childeren as a result of divorce? And should custody of the children be an issue even before the decease was interred. Can anybody put me through on this tradition.

  7. This is satanic. Living together as a couple without adequate wedding is not good enough before God not to mention performing wedding rite with a dead person.
