In a tragedy that can never be explained, a mother and her daughter have lost their lives in an accident on their way to buy things for the daughter's wedding.
A Facebook user, Chinyeaka Jane who shared the sad story on her wall, said that 49-year-old Deaconess Wagoha, herself a medical doctor, was busy preparing for the wedding of her 25-year-old daughter who was also a medical doctor, died on their way to their Onitsha from Port Harcourt to shop for souvenirs for the daughter’s wedding.
According to Jane, the wedding was supposed to take place in two weeks time and everything had been put in place for the day when the sad accident occurred, claiming the lives of mother and daughter.

"May this never be our portion in our season of celebration.
She was just 49, a Registrar in a University. Her first child/daughter was already a Medical doctor at 25 and about to get married. Invitations have gone out and they were just waiting for the great day which never came!
The marriage was to take place 2 weeks ago. Mum and daughter left their base, PH to Onitsha to get souvenirs/ stuff for the wedding and that was it! Death struck!
My heart goes out to their families. How would one begin to console them? What would you say to the man who lost a wife and a daughter? Or the children or the young girl’s husband? OMG!!!
Life and Death!
Just before you brag and boast and threaten others, remember that this life is so transient, so fleeting and ephemeral.
Before you complain about all the things you couldn't get, remember that BEING ALIVE IS A PRIVILEGE.
I am just imagining the feeling in their households now. The man of the house and the bridegroom of the dead lady will still not have recovered from this shock, if they will ever. Sad!!
Rest in peace mother and child. At least, you won’t have any more worries again! My condolences to the families. May God give you and your entire family the fortitude to bear this IRREPARABLE LOSS."
