Facebook user, Blessed Nasa Eriamah, shared the sad news of Amaka’s passing on social media.

According to her,  Amaka was ill and was believed to be recuperating, only for her to die on Monday, November 22.

Her post read: “Exactly 3 weeks after the death of your younger sister at the Ikoyi building collapse, you followed her. Losing two daughters in a space of three weeks is a pain too terrible for a mother to bear.

“When we visited you on Monday you were recovering only to hear of your death today. Amaka why did you follow your sister??. Your mother is trying to be strong, she is trying to hide her pain by singing praises to GOD and laughing when we visited today but she is losing it.

“Amaka! Amaka! Amaka! Please wake up! the death of Onyinye is enough, you can’t allow your mother to bury two children in a day, it is too much for her. Please wake up.”
