The fiancé of a young female military officer who died just a few hours after falling ill has been so heartbroken that there are fears for his life.
The young soldier, Blessing Ene Edache who was just 23-years-old at the time of her death, according to close friends, had just been engaged to the man who is also a soldier known as Khaki, three months earlier before her sudden demise on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, after being ill just for a few hours.
The Adoka, Benue State born Edache was said to be looking forward to her wedding scheduled for later this year and could not stop telling her friends and family about the great event in her life when tragedy struck and since then, her fiancé is said to have been in a state of shock.
He is said to have withdrawn into himself, talking to his late fiancée and at times, wanders away from people with friends fearing he could harm himself as he cannot bear the fact that Edache is no more.
According to family members, the deceased soldier girl will be laid to rest on Friday, January 27, 2017, at her hometown.
