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

Their demand came a few days after Gbajabiamila visited the immediate family of the deceased and pledged to support his children’s education until they become adults.

The widow, however, said she was not aware of the pre-litigation process, urging the Speaker to ignore the family, fulfil his promises to her and her two children.
