Photo: Teacher shot dead in Enugu

A female teacher identified as Princess Uzoamaka Onyishi, nee Ugwuokwor, 40 pictured above was last week murdered by unknown gunmen while on her way from the swearing in ceremony of new commissioners by Enugu state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Vanguard reports that Mrs Onyishi who hailed from Mbu -Akpoti in Isi- Uzo local government area of the state had accompanied a relation of hers , Mrs. Eze, to attend the swearing-in ceremony of her husband, Mr M.E Eze, who was appointed Attorney -General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, when she was attacked and shot in the head by two unknown gunmen.

The victim had left the venue of the swearing in ceremony in company of her Kano-based sister, Mrs Ndidiamaka Nnaji, who she dropped off at their family compound along Ogurugu road in Nsukka, picked up her cousin, Miss Jacinta Okwor, who lives with her and headed for her residence at Uwani- Ugwu. She was driving on the lonely road leading to her home when she noticed two men who looked like their motorcycle was bad. In a bid to assist them, she flashed her light at them so they could see what they were doing when suddenly one of the men brought out a gun and immediately shot at her, shattering her skull. The lady who was with the deceased when the ugly incident happened, Jacinta Okwor, narrated their travail.
“I was in the vehicle with her when the people emerged and shot her. The two men demanded nothing from her, only pointed gun and shot her instantly. When she was shot, she fell on my laps. I did not know she was dead. When the two men left, I started calling her to wake up for us to go, unknown to me that she was dead. As my efforts to wake her failed, I took the bush part and ran to a house not too far from the scene and informed her husband that aunty has been shot dead just now. The killers did not demand anything from her. I sat with her in the front seat. It was a horrible experience. I have not recovered from the trauma. The cloth I wore that faithful day is still soaked with the blood of my aunty. God will never forgive her killers. I am an apprentice tailor under my sister’s care but now they have killed her. One of the two men was dragging motor cycle and she flashed light to help him only for another to emerge from the bush and shot her, point blank without uttering a word to her.”
Uzoamaka Nnaemeka Ugwuokor, the Elder sister to the deceased said
"What prompted her killing still remains a mystery to the family that just buried their father, Igwe Gabriel Ugwuokwor. She was driving herself when the incident happened. She never joined politics for one day. Her only business in politics was to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the newly appointed commissioner. The incident has been reported to Nsukka police division who promptly responded to the call put across to them when she was shot. Both the police and some clergy men assisted in taken her to Bishop Shanahan mortuary where her corpse was deposited. Presently, the matter has been transferred to Enugu state police headquarters. The gruesome killing of our sister has taken the family to a devastating point of agony, mourning, confusion and pity. She is the most endearing in the hearts of members of the family. She was humble, amiable and loving to the people that interacted with her. We are not suspecting any person for now,. Our only prayer is for God to bring out the killers of our sister. She was a mother of five, two boys and three girls. The first is a first year student at UNN, the second will be writing the post UME, the third is in SS 3, the fourth is in SS 1 while the last one is in primary five" she said

Hmmmm may her soul rest in peace.

Most times when we walk into big malls, boutiques, supermarkets, we never question their prices. We pay exactly what we see on the price tags and even hand out tips to the staff.
But the moment we are out of these shops and want to buy banana, our bargaining game gets off to the roof. Poor widow with 12 hungry children at home tells you banana is N100. She even takes out her time to explain how difficult it was for her to even buy it, how the economy is so tough.
But we insist that if it's not N50, we are not paying. Some of us even step back into our cars and make to drive away. But because 'half bread is better chin chin', this woman is forced to call you back and sell to you at little or no gain. In her heart, she cries, she's worried about how she'll survive with her children. She silently reassures herself that 'It's well.
God will definitely provide.'' While you happily chop the luscious banana. Take some seconds out and think about this, guys. Please don't bargain hard with small vendors like this. They do business not to buy designer bags, Gucci shoes but to LIVE and EAT!

Such a sad story, RIP Ma.I have this feeling that the murder was a case of mistaken identity, she might not be the person that the armed robbers wanted to kill.

RIP to the woman... How come nobody is condemning the christians here because we all know it was done by christians. if this incident had happened in the north or any Islamic state then some illiterates wudve been running their mouths here so this is enuf for those illiterates to know that crime is evrywhr irrespective of the person's religion, a criminal is a criminal. Those illiterates eg the likes of Henry Eze shud pls take note else you wud have ur useless self to blame in future.
