This is heartbreaking. A pall of grief fell on Uke community in Anambra State, after a worshipper at Adoration Ministry, Miss Olivia Uchechi allegedly drowned in a canal as she was trying to urinate.
Shocked residents and friends of the late Uchechi combed the canal for her whereabouts without success. The 31-year-old lady’s wedding was four months away.
The incident happened penultimate Sunday.
A resident identified as Robert Agu said: “She had left the church in the middle of Sunday service to answer the call of nature when she slipped into the water-logged canal. The service, her friends started looking for her to no avail.
“They continued their search for her whereabouts till her over-bloated body was found the next day. She was found with the dress she wore to church. Her tragic death is unfortunate because her wedding has been slated for December.’’
It was learnt that her remains were laid to rest last Monday. RIP!
