Woman Cries To Nigerian Embassy Over Corpse Of Husband In China

A woman identified as Mrs. Amaka Ejike, has reached out to the Nigerian Embassy in the country to make sure they bring back the corpse of her late husband for burial in Nigeria after he passed away on a business trip to China.

According to Mrs. Ejike, all efforts to retrieve the body of her husband has proven futile as the authorities gave her the excuse the borders have been closed up.

Narrating her ordeal, she said: “My husband died on 31st December 2020, four days after he went on a business trip to China. Up till today, I have made every effort with the Nigerian Embassy in Shanghai to see how his body can be brought to Nigeria for burial, but they told me that the borders are shut, that there is nothing they can do about the situation.

“They were suggesting to me to cremate his remains. And I found out that it is their culture. Cremation is not our culture, especially in Igbo land because we have roots with the Jews who use to lay their people to rest and give them the last honour.

“I have two little children, 9 and 7 years. It is been very difficult since my husband died. It is now a year and five months. I made every effort to contact the Ambassador. I went to the website; nobody was ready to give me the contact or anything. I found out that there was no update on the Ambassador’s numbers to reach him.

“Finally, I began to speak with the Consulate officer, one Mrs. Safiya and she told me that nothing can be done. And her religion doesn’t allow her to go to the mortuary or do anything. “I don’t know what to do, the remains of my husband is still lying in the mortuary. I have prayed that God can raise an opportunity or appoint somebody who can speak for me.”
