A Nigerian lady, Amarachukwu, has shared the story of how the law became toothless in the face of voodoo after a polygamous man died and left no will behind.
However, the first wife objected to her suggestion strongly and at that juncture, she told family members that she and her late husband sacrificed their first child to amass this wealth hence she has to get more.
The narrator wrote; “Crazy and unbelievable things are happening, so during an externship at MOJ. This man died intestate and he was survived by his 2 wives and children, the 2nd wife was advocating that everything be shared equally amongst all the family members (the 2nd wife’s children are more).
The 1st wife refused, in her defence she and her husband made a pact that on his death, she and her children will get more of the property, because it was her 1st child dat was used for ritual that made them wealthy. Omo everywhere fell silent, at dat point I knew law wasn’t for me.”
