Lady feigns death to collect money from parents

... parents plan funeral, buy casket

CITIZENS COMPASS – A lady simply identified as Rita has feigned her death in Delta State.

The mother of three who reside at Sandfill 2, Warri South West Local Government Area of the state was said to have taken ill about two years ago after the death of her fiance. 

However, her ploy later turned to a mild drama as her parents discovered her to be alive when they stormed her abode with a casket.

Sources in the area said Rita had deceived her parents (name withheld) that she was dead following her protracted illness.

Thus, the dejected parents went straight to the market to buy a casket for her funeral.

It was learnt that a pastor prayed with her and promised to offer financial help of N30,000.

Our source said Rita solicited her parent’s support to no avail and she arranged with neighbours to inform the parents that she had died.

Rita’s parents on hearing the news hurriedly acquire a casket to lay her to rest.

The drama started when the casket was brought to the location where their daughter, Rita resides, and were dazed to see her alive.

“The parents were shocked when they saw their daughter alive.” An eyewitness said.

The resultant confusion led to gathering of neighbours and passersby who brokered peace between parents and daughter due to the embarrassment.

The eyewitness stated that such an incident is viewed as a taboo in the area and the casket had to be destroyed before Rita’s parents took her home with her kids.
