In African society, men are given more importance than women and this becomes more evident when the male head of the home dies and leaves his wife and kids behind.
It has become a common thing for greedy in-laws to gather like vultures to attack the widow and her kids as they tussle to get a hold of her late husband’s properties.
Just recently, Nigerian socialite and media personality, Toke Makinwa, took to social media via Twitter to speak on the issue.
The young lady said that she has never heard of any man being kicked out of the house after his wife dies or properties being seized like it is done to women if the reverse was the case.
Toke said that the way in-laws feel entitled after a husband dies is disgusting and that relatives start to do things they could never have done if the man was still alive.
The media personality wondered how neighbours have to come in and rescue a mourning wife from vultures called relatives. See her tweet below:
In another post, Toke advised that if a woman is married to someone who has a greedy family then she should make sure their properties are in the children’s names if their husbands are not comfortable with them owning the properties jointly.
