The funeral service of late Henrietta Kosoko which was slated to hold in Regina Mundi,Mushin,Lagos has been cancelled.

According to, a member of the burial Committee who pleaded anonymity stated that a huge factor in the cancellation was that Henrietta’s family who hail from Delta State don’t want their daughter buried outside.

‘It’s true that Henrietta’s remains will no longer be buried in Lagos. Her siblings and other members of her family have insisted they’re not burying her in Lagos as earlier planned by Jide Kosoko.

‘Henrietta is Urhobo woman from Delta state, where they cherish their culture. Jide Kosoko didn’t go to her family house in Delta to pay her dowry,’ the source said.

This means Jide Kosoko was not recognised as her husband and therefore has no say in the matter.

Jide Kosoko is unhappy with the development but his hands are tied.
