A retired personnel of the Nigerian Air force, Air Commodore Gadzama, testifies on how he found his death certificate with his wife while he’s still alive.


“My name is Air Commodore Gadzama rtd. I retired last year at the age of 60 as a Senior  officer. When I collected the 30million Naira I saved with my banks, I gave my wife 10million Naira to set up a business so that she can take care of her personal expenses. Part of the money was kept aside for my family expenses while I invested the rest in my business. My wife’s business was doing well as well as mine.


Two months ago, my wife asked me to give her 500,000 Naira for her personal upkeep. I told her to please take it from her business. She got upset and said she will get back to me.


last week, a man came knocking at my door. I opened and ask him what he wanted. He  said he was from one Local Government, an officer in charge of WIDOW EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMME. That my wife applied for 5million Naira Widow Support with my Original Death Certificate. That he was here to verify if she is truly a Widow and to inform her that she has been considered to collect the 5 million Naira. I was speechless, almost fainted. I told the man that I am her husband and still alive. I collected the Original Certificate from him.


The man turned back without uttering a word. I confronted my wife about it and she said, she wanted to add the money to her business.

Later that morning, Local Government officials came with officers of the Nigeria Police to arrest my wife for forging my death certificate in order to collect money from government. I can’t imagine myself going to Police Station to bail a woman who declared me dead while I am still alive.
