However, when a possible homicide is involved, the public is forced to invade the privacy of such a family to ask questions…especially if the victim had made a public outcry before disappearing into thin air.
Charity ‘Chacha’ Aiyedogbon has been missing since May 9, 2016 with no clues as to her whereabouts. Few days ago, new information was received pointing to the fact that the Abuja-based business woman and mother of four may have been murdered.
Her eldest daughter, Juliet Aiyedogbon who is engaged to be married had fixed her wedding for next month, July 9. Nigerians are appalled that the young lady who runs a tomato paste business called Tocuri is still going on with the wedding as planned, despite the fact that her mother is yet to be found.
Her younger sister, Opriche Aiyedogbon was spotted going on a shopping spree and posting pictures of her outing on Instagram. A quick look at the social media timelines of the children of Charity show them carrying on with their lives as if nothing happened.
Nigerians are furious and called them out for their callousness. Their social media accounts swarmed with trolls who rained curses on them for displaying a nonchalant behaviour toward the disappearance of their mother.
The girls in turn blocked as many trolls as they could, while Opriche joked that people should at least like her IG photos when they come stalking her. Later both girls made their Twitter and Instagram accounts private to block out the public.
But trust Nigerians with having no chill. They have threatened to disrupt Juliet’s upcoming wedding. They have also demanded that the headless, mutilated corpse presumed to be that of their mother, Chacha, be deposited at the wedding venue to prick their conscience.
Others cursed Juliet’s fiance who is joining in the display of callousness by going ahead with the wedding. While others cursed Juliet that she’ll never bear children.
