According to the grieving father, Uzochukwu lost his life in a fatal car accident allegedly caused by a drunk driver.

He wrote, “I lost this my son 3 weeks ago, I have been crying like a baby. A medical doctor (ophthalmologist) in America.

“An accident victim of a drunkard who felt asleep while speeding on the highway, jumped his lane opposite direction and hit with speed force on the driver’s side door where my son was as he was driving home after work.

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

The grieving father described his late son as “a very nice boy, always happy, intelligent, friendly, caring, loving, and sociable.”

Igboanugo said his late son wasn’t married as he “sacrificed all his time” to become a medical doctor. He added that he and his wife have been going through psychological trauma since their son’s death.

He wrote, “He was 32 years 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 herself.”

He further expressed the pain of losing a child, saying that even the worst enemy doesn’t deserve this kind of tragedy.
