Mrs. Ifeoma Amarachukwu Ochiagha, a resident of Anambra State, tragically lost her life just two days after her wedding during a gunmen attack in Nnobi. She is set to be buried this Thursday.

Amarachukwu was struck by a stray bullet last Monday when vigilante operatives engaged armed assailants at Nnobi Junction. The vigilantes, led by Commander Eloka Ubajekwe, had received intelligence about the approaching gunmen and moved to intercept them. Unfortunately, Ubajekwe and others, including Amarachukwu, were killed in the crossfire.

The 22-year-old had just celebrated her wedding the Saturday before the incident, eagerly anticipating a life of marital bliss. Her family has shared a burial poster signed by her father, Mr. Timothy Ochiagha, revealing her untimely death.

A relative expressed grief over her passing in a post: “One of the victims of the Nnobi/Nnewi Monday sit-at-home mayhem will be buried on Thursday. Amarachukwu, who got married on Saturday, met her sudden death (unknown gunmen) the next Monday. May your gentle soul rest in peace, Nwadiana.”

The gunmen, suspected to be separatist elements, were reportedly enforcing the abolished Monday sit-at-home protest in the South East.
