Father insists man who killed pregnant daughter must marry her corpse lailasnews


According to the father of the deceased, Mr.Wilfred Nwovueze, the man who killed his pregnant daughter must marry her corpse and also perform the full traditional marriage rites which the custom and tradition of Ndele people in Emohua local Government area demands.

The deceased’s father who pleaded with security agencies to ensure that justice is done in the killing of his daughter, told journalists in Rivers State;

“I don’t want any problem. That girl is my daughter and what I want the Police to do is to allow this J-Boy of a man or his family members to marry my daughter before they bury her.
“All the rites that are due any girl of marriageable age in my community will be done so that there will be no calamity.”
This is coming after we reported that the man at the center of the murder incident identified as Prince Uwabie a.k.a J-Boy, 34, has a history of physically abusing the deceased who is his girlfriend. The suspect who assaulted the deceased on December 2nd until she slumped and died in his house, was nabbed after he hurriedly dug a grave inside his one room apartment and buried her.

  2. that serves him right
    He have to marry her like that
    Since he’s the one who killed her o
    He should marry him
    And after that he should go and spend his lifetime in jail

  3. Is going to serve as a lesson to the said man….he made the man not to gain her daughter existence so he want to benefit from her through such act..he called tradition….

  4. He deserves worst punishment, he is heartless , even went to the extent of digging a grave in his room

  5. Supported!
    Signed!
    Sealed!
    Not because I like the tradition, but because the woman is pregnant and he still keep abusing her till she died and worst part, the idiot went ahead to bury her!
    JUST LIKE THAT?
    whatever condition the father gives him serves him right!

  6. I don’t blame the father for his demand imagine losing a pregnant daughter in unnatural way, he is only demanding for justice.

  7. lost for words with to describe the man,a beast,devil or what.i blame the idiot girlfriend for her fate.a bitter lesson to all ladies

  8. What a wicked man, how can he assault a woman to the point of taking her life, he must be very wicked for doing such, Now the father of the deceased has mandated that he must marry her before she is buried, he bought that upon himself and their no escape root for him, he must face Justice

  9. Nigerian traditions…. Well justice must really take its course, although marrying the dead body won’t do anything but turn him to a widower.. But if the father wishes it, then he should get it. May the girls soul rest peacefully

  10. The guy deserves worst punishment, he’s heartless guy, even went to the extent of digging a grave in his room ,who kill by sword should die by sword,

  11. This is the tradition of the man…and to some extent must be followed But not this one.Yo marry corpse.This is bad…. I feel for the man … loosing your daughter like that is painful.

  12. The guy has the heart to kill and he must marry her corpse before she is buried. Let the girl father stand strong on his feet against the killer of his daughter

  13. Some villages do like that, when you did not marry a girl legally n she gets pregnant for you still you did not do the rites, when she dies you will marry her corpse, the father is not wrong in what he is asking for

  14. I support him. What nonsense. Why kill someone’s daughter. The police should listen to her father. They will know that it’s not easy to have life.

  15. Dis one nah confirm kasala ooo….well he will still b killed for killing so no need to marry d corpes to a dead man

  16. Domestic violence is bad, see where this one has landed him…after she died he couldn’t report what has happened in his house, he went ahead to bury her inside his house. he has to marry her..some tradition will do worse

  17. Yea,! That’s the tradition of we Igbos, if a man is living with a woman without marrying her properly must do that hence she is dead before her burial commences

  18. The murderer should be allowed to sleep with the corpse for two weeks instead of marrying her.Is actually painful but the man should tender judgement with mercy

  19. Double punishment for him, this will serve as a lesson to somemen that turn their wives to punching bag.

  20. Is it the guy that truly killed the woman and getting married to her is it going to bring her back to life so let always think and do the right

  21. He should marry the corps now,after killing her,he should performe the necessary things according to the lady tradition..I support the motion.

  22. A Very heartless being, he deserves to be punished more than that, tradition should also take its course

  23. He have to marry her like that
    Since he’s the one who killed her o
    He should marry him
    And after that he should go and spend his lifetime in jail

  24. Daddy you are right that was your wish for daughter to get married but will you be able to chop the dowry

  25. It’s unfair on the part of the young man for marrying a dead woman but it will be justified if justice is served to the young man for killing the man’s pregnant woman

  26. I don’t blame her father for asking him to marry her, how can he do such a wicked thing to his daughter

  27. I think it’s their tradition,but at the same time it also served as a good punishment for the murderer

  28. Yes thay serve him right.some human don’t have
    concience and God-fearing.killing without thinking of hell fire

  29. He should. At least in his next life, he’ll learn to respect women. I don’t know why some people see relationship as a combat ground

  30. So wicked of him. As customs and traditions demands, he should marry the girl and after that face the law for his punishment

  31. Na waooh! May her soul rest in peace. The boy should do as the girls father has said, which is the normal thing to be done anywhere such a thing happened. Girl please learn from this, don’t go and leave with a man who have not paid your bride price not to talk of being pregnant for him. I rest my case here

  32. No escape for this murderer…he is in for it…he has bitten more than he can chew..this is serious matter.rip to this poor woman..chai

  33. Well,you can’t blame him…his daughter was brutally murdered…what can a poor father do

  34. Serves him right, so when he picks his next victim, he would think of having a corpse as a bride a second time

  35. Exactly you are right,he deserves it ,I love your decision sir,that will be a lesson to those engaged in such act.

  36. That’s the tradition in Igbo land, when a Lady is pregnant for a man and she dies through any fault of his, he must marry her corpse and then bury her. That serves him right.

  37. He should better do that to avoid the calamity as the man claimed. But how on earth will the living marry the dead ? The living has no business with the dead for crying out loud.

  38. It is a closed chapter.the man should know that by now.that u need to marry her in corpse.God will be too far to hear u in prayer.

  39. My God! This world is full of wickedness! Abusing a girl physically, she died in the process, and he dug a pit in his one room apartment to bury the deceased. The guy is desperately wicked. He should fulfill the marriage rites. The police should take action immediately after the marriage rites.

  40. That’s very sure, my own tradition demanded it too.he must marry her and pay all her marriage duties

  41. serve as a lesson to the said man….he made the man not to gain her daughter existence so he want to benefit from her through such act..he called tradition

  42. How cld you be so heartless to kill a pregnant woman dats bad, Mr murder u better marry her ooo, give her full marriage nonsense.may her gentle soul rest in peace Amen

  43. That’s superstitious, marry corpse to avert calamity, the boy should be drag to court jeje, and pay for his crime

  44. He has to Carry out the ritual of marrying a death body,since he was the one that killed her,he should also pay for his evil deed

  45. If that’s what the girl’s father wants
    Then the oga prince aka j boy should get it done before the other part of justice (judiciary and the law) take their course too

  46. Another sad tale of physical abuse that leads in death. We will continue sounding it to the females to take heed. The culprit should be made to face the law. As for the deceased’s father’s demand, I don’t know

  47. He should marry her… Let him pay her bride price.. And he should also face the judge for committing such offense

  48. this is an inhuman treatment and the man deserves whatever punishment metted on him..may her gentle soul rest in perfect peace

  49. What a wicked world we live in this is so bad,I support the father he is a usless man he must be sentence to death by hanging

  50. hahahahahahaha Daddy that is not how to handle the issue the best thing to solve the issue is to kill the man back to make the equation balance

  51. If that is the tradition in their community then it should be duly obeyed. I dont think it is repugnant to natural justice,equity and good conscience

  52. Wicked man he deserves to be punished so that if he eventually get another woman he will not assult her.

  53. Human being are so wicked, but the man should use his mature mind, it has already happened there’s nothing he can do other than for the guy to face the law.

  54. Yes, he must perform all the marriage rites on the deceased before she is finally buried and after that made to face the full wrath of the law because he is a very wicked man.

  55. This is serious. I think J-Boy is between the devil and the deep blue sea. I can’t wait to see how he will get out of it – if at all he will.

  56. Killing your daughter is painful but taking laws into your hands is not accepted . Pls let the police do their job

  57. Yeah I support the father’s judgement… Why will he kill the girl that he impregnated… He has to better marry the corpse

  58. He must pay for his evil act…that serves him right,women always know the kind of men you go home with most men a beast in form of human

  59. In fact the punishment is well reserved, let tradition take its full course, after the marriage rites then he should serve life sentence with the ghost of the girl haunting.

  60. In my place, if u kill a young lady who’s not msrief yet, u will marry her before u bury her and every penny will spent by u. The girl’s family won’t spend a dime. That’s to tech guys to treat girls well

  61. That’s a tradition, if the man dnt want to let go, let the young man face the warriant.

  62. Exactly you are right,he deserves it ,I love your decision sir,that will be a lesson to those engaged in such act.

  63. You turned her into a punching bag even in pregnancy and u wan to bury her. You can’t eat your cake and have t. Only cowards best their spouses

  64. You shouldn’t have kept a girl you don’t marry in your hoise. This Abuja marriage type is dangerous ooo

  65. Hmmmm so pathetic I wish the father of the should just calm dawn n allow the jboy to face full wrath of law

  66. Hmmmm which kind marry again, marry someone who is death ahhh even in marriage its said till death do us part now na after death th wan marry the guy can be purnished in a diff wah now
