According to Daily Post
Last Thursday, 2face Idibia’s mother, Mrs Rose Idibia escaped being lynched by her husband’s family members in Amufu village located in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State.
The bone of contention is the family house project that her star son, Tuface Idibia abandoned due to low cash.
Daily Post learnt that Mrs Rose Idibia and her 4 children were invited by her husband’s family members shortly after her husband, Michael Idibia died.
During the family meeting that held in Amufu, Tuface Idibia was told to build a befitting family house and repair the roads leading to Amufu from Ojapo for easy access during the burial and he promised to do that.
2face Idibia reportedly sent money home and the construction project started but along the line, the project hits a dead end after 2face complained that he’s running out of cash due to Ebola outbreak in the country.
Hear what the family told Daily Post:
“When we contacted 2face, he told us he no longer had money to further the project that he would continue after his father’s burial, but we carried out our investigation and found that it was his mum, Rose that stopped him from completing the project. The mum told him not to waste his money on any building that he would not come home anytime to stay there, saying that his uncles would only take over the house once he completes it,”.
This is what forced 2face Idibia’s father’s family members to resorted to taking revenge on 2face and his mother.
As soon as the corpse touched down in Amufu and the widow alighted, youths in the land began to jeer her, they threw stones and sticks at her calling her all sort of names and saying that she is wicked – some mockingly called her ‘Obu Michael’ (Michael’s husband).
She had to be sneaked into a room by her colleagues from Cherryfield College, Jikwoyi where she serves as Vice Principal, Admin. When all this was happening, 2face Idibia allegedly remained in his car with two of his kids, Isabella and Olivia.
Hear what 2face’s mother said about the whole thing:
“Is it not wickedness that you would call on someone who is mourning his father to come and start a building project? When my husband died, they informed my son to come and build ten bed room flat. He accepted and promised to do so, with the hope that a huge amount of money was coming his way. The building project started almost immediately but stopped along the line because of finance.
So, when they called to complain why money was no longer coming I called Tuface and he said because of the Ebola issue, the money he was expecting could not come that they should hold on till after the burial. But his uncle refused that the burial would not hold until Tuface completes the house.
When we finally came home with the corpse on Thursday, they began to boo me. Some wanted to kill me by throwing stones and sticks at me that I stopped Tuface my son from building in his village,”.
We learnt 2face has cut off all communication with his late father’s kinsmen after the violent attack on his mother.
