According to her, her mother was unwell, however, after visiting the hospital, she was a little bit better stating that the doctor even sent an update that she’s fine, however, she was then transferred to the teaching hospital suggesting that things had gone from bad to worst.

Part of the post she made reads;
“Two hours after she arrived at the teaching hospital, she died. It was March 1st. My father’s birthday. We were planning for my father’s iyipu-akwa, to mark the end of a formal mourning period, and now I cannot believe we are planning another funeral. Again.”
