This video contains a heart-wrenching story of a young widow, who went to her husband’s village to bid him a final farewell after his death. It was there, amidst the somber atmosphere of mourning, that her mother-in-law extended an invitation for her to stay with the family for a while. Grateful for the support during her time of grief, she accepted the offer and remained in the village.

After a period of mourning, the widow made the difficult decision to return to Abuja, the city where she had built a life with her late husband. However, upon arriving at her husband’s house, she was devastated to find that the locks had been changed. The once-familiar abode now stood as a silent reminder of the pain she had endured.

With her world crumbling around her, the widow reached out to her late husband’s brother, hoping for understanding and support. Instead, she was met with a cold response. Her brother-in-law, citing his own future plans for marriage, claimed that she had no right to the house. He callously stated that his future wife would be occupying the property, leaving the widow with nothing.

Driven by a sense of injustice and a desire to reclaim what was rightfully hers, the widow turned to the Brekete Family for assistance. The Brekete Family, known for their commitment to championing the rights of the oppressed, provided her with a platform to share her heartbreaking story.
