Her uncle, Ishiali Ikwe, confirmed her death.
But the deceased’s family have mandated her partner, Stephen Mbam, of  Enyi Igwe Village, Ezzainyimagu community in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State to carry out her traditional marriage rites before she is buried.
It was learnt that the woman had been living with Stephen for three years and their relationship produced a child even though he did not perform marriage rites.
According to the Uncle, the family, who are from same village, has put the burial on hold until Mr. Mbam performs traditional marriage on the deceased.
He further said that Mbam’s family, in line with the tradition, have scheduled a date for payment of the bride price to be preceded by the wedding.
