The 26-year-old was burnt beyond recognition while the driver of the vehicle and the commuter at the front sit reportedly escaped.
Meanwhile, the deceased was meant to pass out from the NYSC scheme next month. She was returning from the government house where she was posted when the crash occurred.
The DG of the Corps, represented by Reverend Akinolu Ajayi, said during the funeral that the late Ngozi’s demise was shocking and painful to the NYSC.
The DG was quoted as saying, “It is very painful that death struck when Ngozi was serving her nation, just two months to her passing out of the scheme.”
The coordinator said, “When the Akwa Ibom State Government House asked for three corps members who studied Accounting, Ngozi was among the three that scaled through out of the 38 graduates interviewed.
“It is not the NYSC that caused her death. Her death during the NYSC programme was one of the vicissitudes of life. It is pertinent at this juncture to disclose that the NYSC bore all the expenses incurred for the burial of the deceased. It is our prayer that God grants her soul eternal repose.”
