Family of a deceased woman have suspended her burial rites until her ‘husband’ who she was living with, performs her wedding rites. The woman, Chinyere Mbam, died from a snake bite she sustained while returning from the wake-keep of her friend, Oge Ogashi.

She was taken to a traditional healing home in the area for treatment and thereafter back to the husband’s home where she died. Her uncle, Ishiali Ikwe, confirmed her death.

But the deceased’s family have mandated her partner, 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 learnt that the woman had been living with Stephen for three years and their relationship produced a child even though he did not perform marriage rites.

Lmao….Things that happens in this world tho
According to the Uncle, the family, who are from same village, has put the burial on hold until Mr. Mbam performs traditional marriage on the deceased. He further said that Mbam’s family, in line with the tradition, have scheduled a date for payment of the bride price to be preceded by the wedding.

Rita Dominic, the ace Nollywood actress, has recounted how the visa ban by United Arab Emirates (UAE) almost ruined her wedding.

The UAE immigration authorities had in October banned visa applications to 20 African countries including Nigeria.

In an appreciation post on Instagram on Tuesday, the movie star narrated how the distance between herself and her cloth designer almost affected the event.

It is believed that the fashion designer resides in Dubai.

Dominic also appreciated the gown designer for “going above and beyond” to get the dress to her despite the ban.

“Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @michael5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was a lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries,” she wrote.

“The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @michael_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going and above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.

“Thank you to my dream team who worked hard to get me looking good in this gown. Love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
