A source said:
The late Henrietta Kosoko came from a staunch Christian home. They are strong Roman Catholic believers and even have a Reverend Father among them. We were received warmly especially by the Rev father and Aunty Rita. Aside confirming her corpse nobody touched nor brought her corpse out of the casket.
Consequently, her corpse was taken away from Lagos and moved to her home town in Abraka, Delta state. To avoid trouble, and then the veteran actor decided to stay away.
Jide Kosoko did not attend his late wife’s main burial in Delta. They have children together and it would have been wise the family allow him pay whatever they believe he did not pay when she was alive
