Osayi Omoigui, was set to wed on the 10th January 2015. She was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver two days ago and
died instantly. Already, friends had bought off the aso-ebi for the wedding till the news of her death broke. Below are some reactions from her friends on Facebook:
David Ihua: Can you see this, Osayi Omoigui? This deep despair that a stranger has brought to us so swiftly. Your light was so bright that it transcended time and space and every time we spoke I could feel it’s glow even though we were thousands of miles apart. I called you sister once and I meant it. I shall miss you beyond words, my sister. The world is left a little darker without your burning light.
Kela Alale: Osayi your demise has brought deep thought into my mind. The circumstances surrounding it. Your wedding in just a few days to come. It brings to mind the song by Alanis Morrisette. Ironic— “its like rain oh your wedding day”………, “….you win a lottery and you die the next day”. Hmmm what a bad taste of event at the end of the year. We lost a few good people, Onajite Onajite Otiotio-onome, we had not gotten over the shock, You again? Why. Life O’ life
Ohimai Unuigboje: Death, where is your sting? Grave..where is your victory? So many..too many have been taken at their prime….I have become numb….yet so distraught! What is this life but a shadow? What is this life but a mist? What is this life but a vapor….it passes away. Rest in peace Osayi Omoigui. May God comfort you all my brothers and sisters and their mother.
