The wife of the newspaper vendor slain by a Department of State Services operative attached to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, Josephine Okereke, has disowned her husband’s family over their demand for N500m compensation.

Josephine, who spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, said she was not aware of the pre-litigation process.

VANTAGE NEWS reported that the family of Ifeanyichukwu Okereke had written to Gbajabiamila, demanding N500m.

Lawyer to the family, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), in a letter dated November 23, 2020, said he was given the mandate to write the letter by the father of the deceased, Okorie Okereke; and the younger brother to the deceased, Destiny Okereke.

Abdullahi Hassan, the operative who shot Okereke was arrested by the DSS last week, while Gbajabiamila had also visited the family of the deceased and promised to ensure that they do not suffer.

However, the family made more demand, adding that nothing could bring the dead vendor back to life.

Denying any knowledge of the pre-litigation process, the widow urged the Speaker to ignore the family and fulfil his promises to her and her two children.
