- A Nigerian lady has been rendered homeless by her deceased husband's family as they sent her packing a day after his burial
- The Anambra widow was sent into the streets at night with only her belongings from a house allegedly built with her money
- The widow's niece who shared the story on social media is seeking help in getting justice for her mourning aunt
A young Nigerian lady identified as Chioma Scholamaria Ugochukwu has taken to social media platform Facebook to seek help for her aunt who recently lost her husband and is being subjected to inhumane treatment by the deceased's family.
Chioma who hails from Nanka Town, Ifite village in Anambra said her aunt's husband was laid to rest on Saturday, March 26 and on the night of the next day, the widow was stripped of all she had.
It took her 8 years: Young lady rejected by her dad because she was born with backward feet builds mum a house
Attaching photos of the lady in wrapper sleeping on what looks like a bench, Chioma stated that the widow was thrown out of her husband's house with her belongings.
Chioma claimed her aunt - who is her father's youngest sister - actually built the house with her own money.

Widom with 5 kids says life has been hellish
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a widow with 5 kids had lamented that life is hellish for them.
Speaking with Legit TV, Blessing Adesuoye said she used to work as a maid before she lost her husband but she couldn't continue with it due to lack of money.
Blessing who now works as an office assistant in a hospital said she doesn't want to remarry. The Igbo woman said she earns over 20,000 naira monthly.
According to the widow, she incurs debt before her salary comes in and offsets it when she receives her pay. She said there is no help from anywhere.
