A former member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and Medical Doctor, identified as Urenna Iroegbu has tragically died barely 48 hours after completion of her service year.
According to Punch, the young doctor was moving back home to Akwa-Ibom when she was killed in a tragic road accident.
The vehicle Doctor Iroegbu was traveling was rammed by a lorry after it drove against traffic following a heavy rain downpour on Saturday evening.
According to a police officer who spoke to the press,
“There were two Sienna Toyota minivans headed towards Akwa Ibom. Around Daewoo just long Onne Road, a trailer had broken down on their lane so they decided to drive against traffic.
One of the Sienna minivans was the vehicle in which the doctor was in. A lorry which had the right of way did not see them on time, lost control and rammed into them. Good Samaritans took them to a hospital. Three of them were taken to Sonabel Hospital around the trailer park while Dr Iroegbu was transferred to Morning Star Hospital, Onne. She died at midnight.”
