Mrs. Augustina Nwovu, and the youth president, Ebia Unuphu village, Mr. Chika Nwenyi described the departed woman as an ideal mother and referred to the sudden news of her demise as shocking and unexpected while praying for her gentle soul to rest in the Lord.

In his remarks, the Executive Chairman, Abakaliki L.G.A, Hon. Emmanuel Nwangele said that he was shocked by the sudden demise of his step mother and thanked God for the life style of the departed soul, pointing out that though her presence can never be felt again here on earth but would forever be remembered for her outstanding legacies.

He appreciated the presence of all the sympathizers who came from both far and near to commiserate with them at their time of sorrow and thanked the people for their financial and moral supports while praying that the Almighty God would grant the departed soul eternal rest in His Bosom.
