A father identified as Ikb Igboanugo has taken to his Facebook page to mourn the death of his son, Uzochukwu Davis Igboanugo, an ophthalmologist based in America. He died aged 32.

The grief-stricken dad explained that the young man died in a fatal car accident caused by a drunk driver.

The distraught father, who stated that Uzochukwu died three weeks ago on his way home from work, said he had not stopped crying “like a child.”

We can’t question God as He has the final decision.

Always pray as a parent not to loose any of your child irrespective of his behaviour because loss of a child can kill any parent.

Uzochukwu my son was a very nice boy, always happy, intelligent, friendly, caring, loving, sociable etc.

He was 32yrs old, not yet married despite my nagging, he sacrificed all his time and achieved Ophthalmology which is a very difficult medical course in the history of reading medicine to become a medical doctor.

Since his death I have been going through mental and psychological trauma as my doctor has been warning me.

My wife also has not been her self

Pls don’t wish your worst enemy this type of tragedy, now I pray for anybody who has not lost his child never to experience it. It is hellish and a disaster.

Uzochukwu my son you are now in God’s bosom and working for Him that was why he took you this early. As your soul will rest in God’s bosom in Jesus name
