Family members and friends of a pregnant Nigerian woman who had her traditional wedding on December 22, 2016, have been thrown into mourning after the lady died on January 11, 2017, just 18 days after, during childbirth.

A Facebook user who is a friend of the deceased, Vera Tochi Ekezie, a native of Umunkpe Uzoagba community in Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State, posted the sad news on her page narrating how the pretty lady gave up the ghost after giving birth to what would have been her first child.

According to the friend, Ekezie who was heavily pregnant at the time she got married, had been complaining of pains caused by an injection she received during labour but died a few hours later, leaving the newborn baby she just gave birth to.

Read the touching tribute Ekezie’s friend penned for her on Facebook:

"Good people don't last; I still can't believe you are gone, my Queen baby girl Vera. My heart bleeds; it has been so heavy and difficult to believe we have lost you.

After all our stress, just for you to have a glamorous traditional marriage on December 22, 2016, which was a huge success, then after, on January 11, 2017, you delivered safely and our joy was cut short few hours later.

Little did we know that death was knocking while you were complaining of severe pains where they injected you during labour.

Few hours after you have put to bed, just like that it becomes reality. OMG...your poor mom, your siblings and loved ones have been in tears.”

“Death, why? It hurts but we can't question God. I and my family will miss you, we love you Tochi but God loves you most.

May your departed soul rest in peace, in the bosom of the Almighty God. Adieu, my Queen baby girl."

May her soul rest in perfect peace.
