Family Of Nigerian Lady Allegedly Killed By Italian Husband Seeks Justice

The family of Rita Amenze, the woman killed by her Italian husband, has appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Italian Government to ensure that justice was served in the case.

Members of the family made the call on Tuesday in Benin, Edo State, when a delegation of the Edo National Association in Italy (ENAI) and the National Union of Nigerian Associations in Italy (NUNAI) paid them a condolence visit.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the delegation, led by Mr Mike Oputteh, the Welfare Officer of NUNAI, arrived at the family house to meet the three children of the deceased sent out of school for failure to pay school fees.

Amenze, the 31-year-old mother of three, was on September 10 shot dead by 61-year-old Pierangelo Pellizar for reportedly filing for divorce. She was murdered less than two weeks after she returned to Italy from Nigeria.

In an emotional ladened voice, Mrs Faith Oyahiagbon, mother of the late Rita, said she had lost her hope and family breadwinner.

Oyahiagbon said she had developed high blood pressure since the death of her firstborn two weeks ago.

According to her, the children left behind are small and there is nobody to take care of them again.

“Rita was my daughter and my firstborn for that matter. She was all I had. She came home recently to see the children and we were all joyous. She had been in Italy for long just to seek a greener pasture.

“Celebrate (her last-child) was six months old when she left her for me for upbringing. We also departed joyously while she was returning only to receive the bad news about two weeks later that she was shot dead.

“But I didn’t believe this until now that you all came. This looks like a film to me because how could I believe that a daughter that meant everything to me is dead?”

She, however, appealed to the Nigerian Mission in Italy and the Nigerians Union to help the family to get justice for the sake of the children.

“So, I want to appeal to all concerned authorities, for the sake of the children she left behind, to please help us seek justice.

“Rita was my leg; she was my life; she was my hope and she was my everything; she even promised me a lot of things when she saw my condition. She promised to change her children’s school,” she said.

Oyahiagbon debunked the claim that Amenze came home to marry and challenged whoever had evidence to come out with it.
