Makurdi murder: Husband’s family disowns wife



NICHOLAS Adetsav and his three kids Nguavese, Evelyn and Joshua were yesterday buried in Makurdi by the husband’s family. However, the body of the wife Rochelle, who was alleged to have killed her husband and the three kids, was said to have been rejected by the family.

The Nation investigations revealed that the family members of the slain Nicholas had rejected her corpse, insisting that she would not be buried in her late husband’s compound in line with the tradition of the Tiv people.

In the obituary poster prepared by the family, the wife’s picture was conspicuously missing.

The police have said autopsies would be conducted on the dead bodies.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer for the Benue State Command, DSP Moses Yamu, said the autopsies are being carried out at St. Theresa’s Mortuary, Makurdi. This is to know the cause of the deaths.
