Vendor: Widow Disowns Husband’s Family Over N500m Demands


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Josephine Okereke, wife to the newspaper vendor who was last week killed from a gunshot fired by one of the security details attached to the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had disowned her husband’s family over their demand for N500m compensation.
Josephine spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday.

The family of Ifeanyichukwu Okereke had written to Gbajabiamila, demanding for N500m as compensation for his death.

Lawyer to the family, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), in a letter dated November 23, 2020, said he was given the mandate to write the letter by the father of the deceased, Okorie Okereke; and the younger brother to the deceased, Destiny Okereke.

The DSS had last week arrested the operative, Abdullahi Hassan, who shot Okereke while Gbajabiamila had also visited the family of the deceased and promised to ensure they do not suffer.

However, the family demanded more, adding that nothing could bring the dead vendor back to life.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
