This is yet another painful story of a promising life cut short on Nigerian road. A young beautiful doctor, Nneoma Uhuegbu, lost her life in a fatal accident while going to collect her induction gown for her induction ceremony which is to hold tomorrow, Thursday, July 28, 2016, at Abia State University.
Young Nneoma Uhuegbu lost her life in the accident which occurred around Umuikaa while going to Umuahia from Aba. The transit had 12 passengers, including the driver, but in an unfortunate twist, she was the only one who died.
Ogbonnaya Bonky Chiduzor, a friend to the young woman, wrote her a very emotional tribute. Read below:
The Audacity of Death
The reckless, arrogant enemy of humanity has struck again. On this occasion, its wicked hands did us an irreparable damage which is permanent. It has snatched away a humble, brilliant, amiable, creative and hard-working doctor from us, in a rude and shocking manner. Nneoma has spent 8 years of her life studying medicine & surgery. Their induction into the medical body was scheduled to hold this Thursday 28 July. What a loss!!!..
What happens to the project I wanted you to be part of? what of the lives you planned to save as a medical doctor ? should we forget about it? No!!!! Hey, I am dreaming, some one should tell me am hallucinating.
We are all aware of death’s recklessness, yet we raise our heads with pride, as the faithful children of God Almighty, who believe in His holiness, the resurrection of Jesus and His superior power over all mundane activities and interests of this wicked world. God has allowed in His wisdom, what his power can avoid.
We love you Dr Nneoma…. The Lord grant your family and colleagues the fortitude to bear this great loss. I will see you in Heaven, RIP Nneoma.

At this point my African mentality tells me that there is more to this than meets the eyes!
