A statement officially announcing the death and burial arrangement of Amaka Ndoma-Egba, wife of Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), former Senate Leader and ex-Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission, has been released.
“With gratitude to God for a most remarkable and worthy life, The Ndoma-Egba and Onono families of Cross River and Anambra States respectively, announce the transition to eternal glory of our wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunty and friend. Mrs. Amaka Lauretta Ndoma-Egba (Nee Onono) died on 19th November, 2020 at the age of 54,” the statement issued on behalf of the family by Prof. Rowland Ndoma-Egba reads.
According to the statement, Amaka will be buried on December 12, 2020 after the funeral mass at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish, Akparabong, Ikom, Cross River State, scheduled for 10am.
A Night of Tributes will be held for her on December 6 at Myra Event Centre, Plot 135 Mustapha Bello Street, Guzape, Abuja, beginning from 5pm, while a Requiem Mass will hold on December 9 at the Church of Assumption, Asokoro, Abuja by 4pm.
The statement further said Amaka, an entrepreneur and founder of Start-Rite Schools, is survived by Victor Ndoma-Egba (Husband), Hugo and Nneoma Ndoma-Egba (Son and Daughter-in-law), Zara Ndoma-Egba (Daughter), Kamy Ndoma-Egba (Daughter), Adaora Ndoma-Egba (Granddaughter), Ngozi Adodo (Sister), Thomas Onono Jnr (Brother), Ifeanyiwa Menkiti (Sister), Cynthia Edozie (Sister) and Chiazor Onono (Sister).
Also left to mourn the painful demise of Amaka are her many in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, adopted children, the Ndoma-Egba and Onono clans and close friends.
Amaka passed away after the bus conveying her and four others to Okitipupa, a town in Ondo State, from Benin for a programme got involved in a ghastly motor accident.
They had flown to Benin from Abuja before embarking on the rest of the trip by road the day the unfortunate auto crash occurred.
Meanwhile, former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, on Friday visited Ndoma-Egba, who was of the same class with him in the Nigerian Law School (Class of 1978), to console him for the lost of his dear wife Amaka.
