A young woman has reportedly died twice in Orimedu area of Ajegunle community, Ogijo, Ogun State.

‘Orimedu Tailor’ as she was fondly called was nursing a two-month-old baby before her death on Friday 25 November.

According to a witness, ‘Orimedu Tailor’ was reported to have been ill before the unfortunate event.

She reportedly slumped and died while at her shop. On sighting her corpse, neighbours raised an alarm and people gathered at her shop to sympathize with her family for the untimely loss.

Miss Blessing Musa who recounted the incident to our correspondent said once Orimedu Tailor passed on, her pastors from the Redeemed Christian Church of God where she worshipped came to her shop and prayed for her.

Blessing said, “Last Friday, Orimedu Tailor who had been sick for some days, but was getting better after taking some medications, slumped and died few minutes after she arrived her shop.

“People around began to cry and some of her family members were called so they can know what happened. Some of her family members, including her husband came to the shop with their pastors from church. They locked themselves in the shop and prayed for a long time.

“We heard that they prayed for about 7 hours and a miracle happened, Orimedu Tailor woke up and everyone rejoiced. When she stabilized, they took her to the hospital.

“It was early Saturday morning that we learnt Orimedu Tailor died the second time late Friday night and her body has been deposited at the mortuary”.

Efforts to reach Orimedu Tailor’s husband by our correspondent proved abortive as at the time of filing this report.
