The family of a US-based Nigerian man, identified as Omorinbola Olatunji, are currently in distress as his wife refuses to provide evidence of his alleged death or burial.
According to his sister, Omorinbola Mojisola Ijatuyi, her brother and his Nigerian wife moved to Illinois, US, in November 2016.
In Jan 2018, his wife, Tosin Lawal, called to tell the family that her husband is dead.
They were shattered by the news and requested for photos of his body and his burial so they could see him one last time.
However, till date, she has reportedly refused to send proof of her husband’s death or explain how he died.
Mojisola said Tosin was always making excuses and stopped communicating with the family. She said she tried contacting her via Facebook but she blocked her on the platform.
She added that Tosin also denied them access to the child she had with her brother abroad.
In a lengthy post she shared on Facebook, Mojisola wrote,
“Pls, everyone in the world that can help,we need your help, because my family is so helpless.
“My brother who is in this picture Omorinbola Olatunji and the wife Tosin Lawal travelled to US( Illinois) in year Nov 2016, and everything was going on smoothly between them, she even gave birth to a child on getting there, but after a year and 2 months the story changed.
“Our brother wife called us one early morning on Sunday 20th of January 2018 and informed us that our brother is dead, we were all shocked and in deep sorrow but we consoled her and encouraged her to be strong and told her to just send pictures of him been buried so that we can see him for the last time before his laid to rest. She told us that CAC church South exchange Chicago 2 were the one that did the funeral.
“Surprising our wife refused to send to us any evidence regarding my brother death, she said that the pictures were to large for her to send to us, later she said her phone crashed and she lost all pictures of his burial and the incident scene, she couldn’t not even explain what killed him, she said 2 different stories , she also stopped communicating with all of us including my aged parents,she did not even consider that my daddy who was the one that sponsored them both to US just had accident then, after a while I tried all means to contact her I asked her why was she not sending those pictures that we requested earlier, she became very angry and unfollow me on Facebook ,she also denied us access to the child.
“Also her mummy who reside at (no [redacted] street Mushin Lagos) threatened
my parents that they are not supposed to ask for any evidence regarding my brother death and they should warn their children not to post anything relating to incident online. Even after inviting my parents all the way from Akoko to Lagos, she could not give them and evidence to prove my brother death, she said we should just take it like that.
“Up till now we have not heard anything regarding my brother pls help us to share this till it can get to someone that can help us.”
