Effiezy.com learnt that the murder suspect had initially agreed to marry the corpse in compliance with traditional rites suggested by relations of Nwamma but later spurned the agreement for fear of the unknown.
Informed sources said the lover boy refused to honour the agreement because the marriage arrangement was alien to his culture.

The source said the Nwamma family had stuck to their guns that the corpse of Chidebere would not be buried until his lover boy agrees to do so.
The mother of the deceased, Mrs Lovelyn Nwamma said the family has softened on the conditions given to Saliu. According to her, we have monetized the rites but the family of the lover boy has not shown up
“We were told the parents of the boy lives in Lagos while the boy lives with his uncle in Akure.
“We have asked them to bring money to go and perform the rites without them, but they have not shown up while the corpse of our daughter is still lying in mortuary for eight months.
