And many questioned why he wasn’t addressed as husband in the obituary poster, among other things. 

Rita Edochie who refused to mark her 2024 birthday as a result of mourning the deceased, responded by lamenting life’s unfairness and expressing regret that the actor would be laid to rest. 

She mourned bitterly that her once-vibrant son was now the one for whom a funeral had been planned.

Rita explained that she had been trying to take her mind off him for a few days, trying not to imagine that he was no longer alive, but the poster further exacerbated the void in her heart.

She, however, cancelled the re-emergence of affliction and prayed for the repose of the thespian’s soul.
