The tragic incident was announced on Facebook by Obunwa Victor, the older brother of the deceased’s husband.
“What a black Sunday to the family of Godwin E. Egbucha as we lost a 9 months wedded wife to the cold hand of death, MRS. ESTHER NGOZI OBUNWA the wife of my immediate younger brother Pst.

We can’t believed that you are dead leaving the family you cherish most, your husband, brothers and sisters in-laws, the church, in fact not even the little daughter which you gave birth to last week Friday 8th Dec. 2017. Ngo it is difficult to bid you GOODBYE. Rest In Peace.” (sic)
