A young woman identified as Amaka Enekwe has died exactly three weeks after her younger sister, Onyinye, died in the Ikoyi building collapse on November 1, 2021, a few weeks before her wedding.
The news of her death was announced on Facebook by a social media user by the name Blessed Nasa Eriamah, on Tuesday.
Blessed Eriamah stated that Amaka was recovering from an illness only to die on Monday, November 22, three weeks after her sister.
Blessed Eriamah wrote: “Exactly three weeks after the death of your younger sister at the Ikoyi building collapse, you followed her. Losing two daughters in a space of three weeks is a pain too terrible for a mother to bear”.
When we visited you on Monday you were recovering only to hear of your death today. Amaka why did you follow your sister”?
Blessing revealed that the deceased’s mother is trying to be strong and trying to hide her pain by singing praises to GOD and laughing when she was visited today.
The younger sister, Onyinye, was among the 43 people said to have died in the building collapse on Gerrard Road in Ikoyi.
She worked as a second personal assistant to the Chief Executive Officer of Fourscore Homes, Femi Osibona, who also died in the collapse. She was preparing for her wedding which was to take place in December.
