A young woman identified as Bettina Ofodim Abugha was reportedly stabbed to death by suspected armed robbers in Kaduna State.
Details of the incident are sketchy at the time of this report, but it has been established that the University of Calabar graduate was attacked by robbers on her way home from work last week.
Family members, friends and former classmates took to Facebook to mourn her.
In her tribute, Obong-Unwana Ubom, a member of the choir to which she belonged, said the master’s degree holder “went in search of greener pastures in Kaduna” and was made manager of her workplace.
“Watch this video and understand why we become valiant with those who play politics with our lives and our future. Bettina (the only woman in this video) is dead. She was stabbed to death. A master’s degree holder who only went in search of greener pastures in Kaduna. I learned that she had been appointed manager of her place of work. Bettina was everything. We always sang her praises right in front of her while she was in our choir. I don’t want to write too much but you see, the blood of the innocent people who died of insecurity would be on whoever supports this bad government. This one makes me very sad. May his soul rest in peace, Amen” , he wrote.
Her brother, Simon Jnr Abugha, wrote four days ago: “Today we say goodbye to my big sister, daughter, friend and all she meant to us all. We miss you so much already sis, I still can’t believe you”. I left. My prayer for you today and everyday is that you rest in peace. Until we see love again. We love you, we always will, your little brother loves you, but God definitely loves you more. May the soul of Bettina Ofodim Abugha and the soul of the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen,”
Another friend wrote: “She holds a generation of big dreams and goals filled with glory and light, but the system of the nation has let her down. She is strong with great strength and I’m sure her blood will shun the wicked and give them no peace. He gives and takes in his unique time and his authority is final. Grant your daughter eternal rest Lord. Comfort and console family, friends and loved ones Lord. RIP fire Bettina Ufodim.
