According to a Facebook user, Kennedy Nwachukwu, the first to go was Chinyere who lost a battle against kidney failure and while the family was putting plans in place for her burial, Jonas who was suffering from cancer, also died two weeks later.

The couple who had six children, were from Ichi community and Uruagu-Nnewi, all in the state, were buried on the same day in adjoining graves.

It was gathered that the late Jonas had even written a very touching tribute for his late wife not knowing that he would join her shortly after.

Jonas was 56-year-old at the time of his demise while Chinyere was 46-years-old.

May their souls rest in peace.
