Parents demand justice over nurse’s mysterious death in Imo


The parents of a 22-year-old female nurse, Ginika Judith Okoro, who died in the house of her boyfriend, Charles Ndukwu, in Ezeogba, Awaka, Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State, have called on the Nigeria Police and state government to unravel the cause of the mysterious death of their only daughter.

Speaking to PUNCH Metro on Thursday, the mother of the late nurse, Mrs. Caroline Nneji, said, “My only daughter died last Sunday when she visited a young man called Charles. My only daughter who was 22 years old was raised by us. She has a chemist shop where she treats patients and you know as a nurse she goes to patients’ houses sometimes to treat them. This fateful Sunday, she visited a young man and died in his house.

“My only eye has gone. What sin did I commit that cannot be forgiven,” she wept.

On how she was informed of the death of her daughter, she said, “Around 9 pm on Sunday, the said young man by name Charles Ndukwu came to our house and told us that our daughter was unconscious and he took her to the hospital where the doctor confirmed her dead.”

According to the nurse’s stepfather, Mr. Nneji, “The suspect, Charles Ndukwu, told us that he went and bought pepper soup for our daughter, but she became unconscious after taking the pepper soup, and he rushed her to Edochie Clinic, Awaka in Owerri North where she was confirmed dead by the presiding doctor.”
