Young Nigerian Lady Who Was Gun Down On Her Way To Renew Her UK Visa Laid To Rest Last Saturday


The 23-year-old Nigerian lady, Faith Ariwera Chuku who was
was shot dead by unknown gunmen along Emohua-Elele-Ahoada
Road, Rivers State, was on Saturday, September 10, laid to
rest in Port Harcourt cemetery after a funeral service at
Living Hope Baptist Church, Elelenwo.
Faith was one of the hundreds of Rivers pupils sent abroad by
the immediate past Chibuike Amaechi administration under the
now rested Governor’s Special Overseas Scheme of the Rivers
State Sustainable Dev. Agency(RSSDA) and returned to help
her parents raise money to continue further after Governor
Wike’s government allegedly announced a cancellation of all
forms of Academic Scholarships in the State.
She made first class in Medicine from The University of
Newcastle, UK and was on her way to Abuja in company of
her mother to renew their UK visas when she was killed
Someone wrote;
Dear Governor Nyesom
Ezenwo Wike,
LATE FAITH ARIWERA
CHUKU; ONE DEATH TOO
MANY:
His Excellency, this is not
another of my usual
criticism of what our state
has become under you, it is
also not another political
post as such, but a deep cry
from a very sincere heart.
As you may well note, this
would be the first time I
would be addressing you as
‘His Excellency / Governor’.
It is a testimony of the
seriousness attached to the
issue under consideration.
The lady whose pictures
appear below is one of the
hundreds of Rivers pupils
sent abroad by the
immediate past Chibuike
Amaechi administration
under the now rested
Governor’s Special Overseas
Scheme of the Rivers State
Sustainable Dev.Agency
(RSSDA).
I hear she made first class in
Medicine from The University
of Newcastle, UK.
As you read this Sir, the sad
news is that she is no more,
a bright star is no more,
such a shining example of the
human potentials of our
state has been sent to the
world beyond at her prime.
Sir, the very sad news is that
she was shot along the now
infamous Emohua-Elele-
Ahoada Road in Rivers State
on her way to Abuja to new
renew her visa for a possible
return to the UK.
I also hear she’s the only
daughter of her widowed
mother(not so sure), who
bore the difficult brunt of
seeing her daughter through
school after your government
announced a cancellation of
all forms of Academic
Scholarships in the State.
Reports say she had returned
to help her family raise
money with which to proceed
to Medical school,sadly, her
return has cost her life, what
a loss His Excellency!
