The Nwabunike family of Ezenwelike, Ukunu- Eziora, Ozubulu local government area of Anambra has announced the glorious exit of their matriarch, Nneora Maria Adaobi Nwabunike( nee Chukwuma).
Aged 91, the late Nneora Adaobi was a devout Catholic who contributed immensely to the growth of the Church in her community and was awarded the prestigious title of “Nneora” (Mother of Multitude) in recognition.
Popular during her lifetime as “Iju Wagon”, the late matriarch of Nwabunike family was also philanthropist and a humanist whose kind-heartedness towards the downtrodden was unparalleled.
A cross section of indigenes of Ozobulu testify to the salutary virtues of the late matriarch. They rue that she will be sorely missed.
The Nwabunikes say having departed this world at a riped age of 91, her funeral will be more of a celebration of a life well lived.
A programme of events released by the family indicates that Lolo Obi’s rites of passage will commence on August 26 with a service of songs at her residence, Late Chief Jonny Okafor’s compound, Ezenwelike village, Ukunu- Eziora, Ozobulu.
