A Nigerian lady has narrated how her aunt passed away due to her husband’s alleged refusal to give her health the priority it deserved.
@Madam_Ufuoma said her aunt usually gives her salary to her husband every month, but when she had a serious medical condition, the man refused to deposit N50,000 for surgery to be carried out and she later died. The narrator claimed her uncle used the money to repair his car.
According to her, shortly after the woman died, the husband went to her bank and emptied her account, and a year later he married another woman.
She recounted: “After my aunt died, her husband remarried barely a year later. She died because he refused to drop 50k for her surgery, he used the money to repair his car. That wasn’t even his money, she submitted all her salary to him, as soon as she got paid, he would withdraw the money for the “family”.
The emotional abuse and many more was discovered after she died, she told no one about it, she just endured because of the kids and she didn’t marry “early”.
She was a nurse, well paid but never spent a dime of her hard work on herself. After her death, this man refused to bury her in the land that was bought with her own money. Instead, he made arrangements for her to be buried in government land and made it look like he bought a new land for her to be buried.
She told no one about what she was going through and she was always bubbly, she cared about everyone but she married a fool who is responsible for her death.
The doctor who treated her revealed her condition to us when it got critical after he noticed the husband wouldn’t budge, he went through her file and called her brother who was her emergency contact. The brother quickly went there with the money but it was too late. Apparently, she had a tumor that could have been handled through surgery with just 50k. From emotional abuse to headaches, high blood pressure and tumour. The foolish man chose to use the money to fix his car.
As soon as she died, he went to the bank to empty her account. By the way, during the burial arrangement, the man kept saying “na who die na e lose*. He disrespected her in life and in death, the children witnessed everything and the eldest son and daughter don’t even like him because they saw everything he did. The last boy may not remember much because he was just 7yrs old when it happened.”
