Medicine After Death as Chief Thomas Ereyitomi finally paid bride price on the corpse of Madam Caroline Okorodudu, an honourable act that he should have done when she was alive if only he weren’t irresponsible: Note that the bride price on the death of Madam Caroline was paid on Sunday 25th November 2018, in Pa. Roger Okorodudu’s residence located at Ogiyide. I thought some of his apologetic admirers and sycophantic loyalist were attacking me by claiming he had earlier married the lady before he was bestowed upon a chieftaincy in the land? Well, Madam Caroline Okorodudu can now be addressed as Mrs Caroline Ereyitomi, a status she was denied when alive but given after her death.
