After her son, Ikemefuna Orji, died, Felicia Orji was determined to find a wife for him so the family lineage could continue. Her family performed all the marriage rites and Chinyere Ikemefuna Orji joined their family as Ikemefuna’s wife after his passing.

Twelve years later, Chinyere now has three children, whose father is an agreed member of Ikemefuna’s extended family.

This is a story of a long-standing tradition among the Igbo people that you probably have never heard of.
