A make-up artist, Abigail Frederick, has been buried along the river after she died in the boat accident that claimed the life of Nollywood actor, Junior Pope and others.

She was buried at the bank of the Anam River.

Moses Ekor made the revelation on his Facebook, saying the burial took place due to financial constraints as Abigail’s father was unable to perform the necessary rituals to bring her body back home to Akwa Ibom State.

Moses Ekor expressed his concern and disappointment, labelling the riverbank burial as a disgraceful.

He extended his gratitude to the generous individuals who contributed funds for Abigail’s parents to travel from Akwa Ibom to Asaba.

He wrote:

Following the passing of actor, Junior Pope, a Nigerian man has come forward with information regarding the traditional rites that must be performed for his burial.

He mentioned that an amount ranging from N30 to N40 million is required for these rites to be conducted away from the river.

The man shared these details during a live video on Instagram, explaining that it is customary for individuals who have lost their lives near bodies of water.

He emphasized that when someone drowns, the river spirits have a claim to the body, and if the family chooses to bury the deceased elsewhere, there may be repercussions.

Despite the possibility of appeasing the river spirits, he cautioned that it does not guarantee complete protection from potential risks.

An eyewitness present at the accident site confirmed that Junior Pope’s family was aware of these customs and opted not to bury him by the river.

Fortunately, the river community did not cause any disturbances or attempt to reclaim the body but rather informed the family about the potential consequences of their decision.
