A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member identified as Cynthia Ifunanya Chigbo serving in Anambra State has reportedly passed away.
The deceased corps member, an indigene of Enugu state, reportedly died in Enugu where she resides with her parents.
Friends of the deceased had taken to their various social media accounts to share very touching tribute messages.
One of them, Yahaya Onalo wrote, “After successful academic years, she was mobilized for NYSC to join the batch C stream one serving in Anambra State.
“Cynthia Ifunanya Chigbo died leaving her family and the entire NYSC in pains.
“This is a very sad news to both family and friends, as no parent ever prayed to bury their child especially a fully growned graduate.”
Another friend, Adaobi said, “Cynthia couldn’t wait to reach the destination she was destined for. Her entire family and friends are really in shock to have witness such a loss. It is really unfortunate to labour in vain.
“Sometimes I wonder about life and ask myself why the death always strike when the glory of a man is about to manifest.
“Death strikes when a lot of efforts have been made to make things work, the moment your light is about to shine, death will come like a thief in the night to snatch away the joy of the bearers.
“Death oh death! Life is just like a paper. Wind can blow it away at anytime. This world we think is our home is just a market place which can not entertain us for long.
“What more can we I say? Cynthia rest in the bossom of the maker.”
A source from the NYSC in the state confirmed the incident to our correspondent.
The source which disclosed that the corps member died at home with her parents, said the organisation had already been informed by the parents.
