Moment Chinwe Owoh and other women searched for late Cynthia Okereke at her funeral

A video shows the moment some women at the burial ceremony of late actress Cynthia Okereke ran around the venue searching for the deceased.

The veteran actress sadly lost her life almost one year after she was kidnapped alongside actor Clemson Cornel Nonyelu, popularly known as ‘Agbogidi’ while filming in Enugu, last year.

In a video, some elderly female friends of the deceased including ace actress Chinwe Owoh were spotted running around in tears to search for the late actress, an act which was traced to an alleged Igbo traditional practice.

@prettyjenny292 reacted: “What are they chasing?”

@noblec said: “That’s how we igbo do during burial, that we are looking for the person that died.” said: “It’s Igbo tradition, if you grew up in East you will most likely see this.”

@ocha_dani said; “It’s actually an igbo tradition. Maybe some communities in your side decided to skip it so it’s not common in your area.”

@goldsandra8 wrote: “Some communities even go around the community looking for the person with palm fonts with there clothes torn.”

@Sunshine said: “Oh Mama Cynthia passed? may she RIP.”
