A Doctor and entire family perished in a crash enroute to her wedding

A female medical doctor awaiting induction, Dr Ijeoma Onwubalili, and three members of her family have lost their lives in an auto crash in Benue state on the way to her traditional wedding in Anambra.

Other members of the family that lost their lives in the accident that occurred along Aleyede and Oturkpo in Benue State on Sunday include her parents, Mr Simon and Mrs Ifeoma Onwubalili, and her sister, Grace Onwubalili.

According to The Punch, the victims were indigenes of Ufuma in the Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, but were based in Jos, Plateau state.

They were headed to Anambra for Ijeoma’s traditional wedding scheduled for December 31 when the accident occurred.

The driver of the car and one of the family members, Marvel Onwubalili, survived the accident.

Dr Ijeoma was expected to be inducted as a medical doctor by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) between January and March 2018 at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
