A popular maxim that says blood is thicker than water is not effective in the case of Mr. John Nwose and his elder sister, Mrs. Mgbafor as Nwose was thrown out of the house Mrs. Mgbafor assisted him to build in the village.
An eye witness said that Mr. Nwose who is in his late sixties started building a house in his home town in Delta state at a youthful age when he was living in Lagos in the late 80s.
Our source said his elder sister, Mgbafor who married to a Yoruba man was well to do then, hence she decided to assist him to build the bungalow in their home town.
Emerald News gathered that Mr. Nwose was happy to be assisted by his only sister and accepted the idea of collaborating together to build his house in the village.
Our source said that after many years Mr. Nwose retired from white collar job in Lagos and retired to his village in Oshimili North LGA, Delta State, but Mgbafor his sister who had married three different men divorced her Yoruba husband and came back to her family house.
An eye witness told Emerald News that not too long Mgbafor came back to her family compound, she started claiming the house she built along with Paul.
Our source said that Mgbafor took her brother to court over the house and won the case.
An eye witness told Emerald News that Mgbafor who married in her village before marrying two Yoruba men claimed that the house in her family compound should be given to her first son she gave birth to in her village.
Our source said that as a result of that, Nwose who was thrown out of his family compound died out of heart attack because his kinsmen could not defend him.
Emerald News gathered that although before he died, one of his sons had started building a bungalow, his father could not hold the shock of his sister’s action against him.
