Dr. Chinelo Megafu: Who Is She?
Chinelo, one of the passengers on the Kaduna-bound train that was attacked, took to social media platforms, particularly Twitter, at the time of the tragic incident to ask for prayers. “I’m on the train,” she said in a tweet. “Please pray for me; I’ve been shot.” Although some Twitter users mocked her and called her a liar, others did not believe her. Her friends claimed she was assassinated during the attack several hours later.
“Just woke up to unfortunate news,” Michael Ajidahun, her friend, tweeted. My friend just found out that a close friend was killed by terrorists while riding the Abuja-Kaduna train. We should pray for her, she tweeted yesterday. She did not make it, unfortunately. She was a medical professional. “I’m devastated.”
In a statement issued by its President, Prof Innocent Ujah, the Nigerian Medical Association expressed sadness over the news, saying it was “one too many.” “As an Association, we vehemently condemn the country’s worsening insecurity, which has made all of us, as well as Nigerians in general, vulnerable to violent attacks by bandits, hoodlums, terrorists, and kidnappers, who are currently having a field day inflicting deep sorrows and serious pains.”
Chinelo was 27 years old and on her way to leave Nigeria when she died unexpectedly. The photos from the funeral are currently circulating the internet, bringing tears to the eyes of netizens. May God grant peace to the departed, and stay tuned to getindianews for more news like this.
