Drunk driver kills 32-year-old Nigerian Ophthalmologist in US

A 32-year-old Nigerian ophthalmologist living in the United States, identified as Uzochukwu Igboanugo, has reportedly been killed by a drunk driver.

In a Facebook post, his father, Ikb Igboanugo, shared the tragic news, stating that his son died in a car accident allegedly caused by an intoxicated driver. He wrote: “I lost my son three weeks ago and have been crying like a baby. He was a medical doctor (ophthalmologist) in America.

“He was the victim of an accident caused by a drunk driver who fell asleep while speeding on the highway, crossed into the opposite lane, and collided with the driver’s side door of my son’s car as he was driving home from work.

“We cannot question God’s will, as He has the final say. Always pray as a parent not to lose any of your children, regardless of their behavior, because the loss of a child can be devastating.

“Uzochukwu was a very nice boy, always happy, intelligent, friendly, caring, loving, sociable, and more. He was 32 years old and not yet married despite my urging. He dedicated his time to achieving his goal of becoming an ophthalmologist, a very challenging medical field.

“Since his death, I have been suffering from mental and psychological trauma, and my doctor has been warning me. My wife is also not herself. Please, don’t wish this type of tragedy on your worst enemy. I now pray for anyone who has not lost a child never to experience it. It is hellish and disastrous.

“Uzochukwu, my son, you are now in God’s bosom, working for Him. That is why He took you so early. May your soul rest in God’s bosom in Jesus’ name,” the grieving father prayed.
