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 N500 m compensation .
Josephine spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday .

The family of Ifeanyichukwu Okereke had written to Gbajabiamila , demanding N500m .

Lawyer to the family, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), in a letter dated November 23, 2020, said he was given the mandate to write the letter by the father of the deceased, Okorie Okereke ; and the younger brother to the deceased, Destiny Okereke .

The DSS had last week arrested the operative , Abdullahi Hassan , who shot Okereke while Gbajabiamila had also visited the family of the deceased and promised to ensure that they do not suffer .

However, the family demanded more , adding that nothing could bring the dead vendor back to life .

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 .
