Agony As Female Doc Dies Two Days After NYSC



A young female medical doctor, Urenna Iroegbu, has died two days after completing her National Youth Service Corps ( NYSC) Programme in an auto crash.

The sad incident occurred after a commercial vehicle in which she boarded to return to her base in Akwa Ibom had a head on collision while driving against traffic along Onne Road, in Port Harcourt.

It was gathered that the young medical doctor had  graduated from Imo State University last year after spending eight years studying medicine.

A police officer narrated the incident to The PUNCH Saying “There were two Sienna Toyota minivans headed towards Akwa Ibom. Around Daewoo just long Onne Road, a trailer had broken down on their lane so they decided to drive against traffic.

“The Sienna minivans was the vehicle in which the doctor was in. A lorry which had the right of way did not see them on time, lost control and rammed into them. Good Samaritans took them to a hospital. Three of them were taken to Sonabel Hospital around the trailer park while Dr Iroegbu was transferred to Morning Star Hospital, Onne. She died at midnight.”

Meanwhile, her friends have taken to social media to mourn the medical doctor expressing sadness over her  demise.
