A beautiful Nigerian lady Immaculate Okochu has been crushed to death in Lagos by a truck just hours after she posted an ominous note on her Facebook page.

Okochu, who was planning to wed in October, was the store manager of Cold Stone Creamery Nigeria in Apapa.

On 11 August, she plastered several photos of herself and wrote: “Been a while you saw me”.

It proved to be her way of saying goodbye, like Jesus of Nazareth.

Her last post before then was on 6 July when she offered some apparels for sale and asked her fans to DM her.

On 12 August, she also posted a selfie, wearing a yellow dress as she left her home.

She didn’t return home. Friends said she was crushed by a truck on Badore Road in Ajah around 11am on Wednesday.

She died at Lagos State General Hospital in central Lagos. She would have been 25 on 12 December.

Her Facebook page has been inundated with condolences by her fans and relations.

  1. Accidents are bound to happen. Even in advanced countries where there are strict rules, people die of road accident. Although if our roads are in proper shape and our drivers well trained, that would have reduced road accident in Nigeria. May God comfort her family and fiancee! Rest in peace

  2. Bad government and Bad drivers are same as Boko Haram terrorists and Fulani herdsmen killers.

    Day by day Nigerians are dying needlessly. If they are not dying in the hands of Buhari’s Fulani herdsmen killers, they would be dying in the hands of Boko Haram terrorists, in some cases they would be killed by Bad drivers or as a direct consequences of general insecurity in Nigeria owing to Buhari’s CLUELESSNESS.

    Whichever way you look at it, Buhari has failed woefully. What a man and his unfulfilled promise of Change.

    What a needless change Nigerians made in 2015. What a huge mistake.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  3. May the Almighty God console her family and friends and grant her eternal rest, Amen.
    This is another aspect of the endless tragedy bedeviling Nigeria as a result of many years of planlessness. Sometimes, I have decided just to keep my peace because it appears that the country has almost got to the point of no return to sanity.
    Years ago, traffic lights were everywhere all around Lagos and other Nigerian cities. Today, I doubt if this still exists. Traffic police did their jobs diligently in those days. Reports show that this is no longer the case. Anyone who sees the pictures of Lagos, Ibadan, Abuja, PHC, Enugu, Kaduna, Maiduguri and Sokoto will see wares and goods recklessly displayed on the roads despite the heavy traffic going on there!
    Certainly, I would have suggested the re-introduction of traffic lights and the clearing out of roads for free traffic movements, but the question remains that those given the task will merely use it as another avenue for corrupt practices.

  4. Would the accident be investigated properly? someone should be held responsible if something wrong is identified. It’s about time Nigeria did things the way it should, so much carelessness in the country

  5. This is horrible. We need to review and improve on the way we use our roads by both drivers and pedestrians. There should be road signs and all users must understand those signs. Similarly, the road worthiness for both drivers and their vehicles should be certified regularly, and our roads should be made to be in good shape at all times.
    My prayers and thought to the family of the deceased!
