Award-winning actress cum producer, Omoni Oboli, went down memory lane during the week recalling what it means to loose a loving mother at the age of 24. She described the painful loss as the worst experience of her life.
The ‘Being Mrs Elliot’ star took to her Facebook page to pour her heart out. She was reacting to the gruesome murder of a female pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and mother of seven, Mrs. Eunice Elisha, who was killed last Saturday morning by unknown assailants while preaching around the Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory.
In her words, “I was about 24 years old when I lost my mom. I already had a family of my own but till date. It’s the worst experience of my life. She had been ill but that didn’t make it any less painful. “Loosing a mom suddenly, needlessly and senselessly to some barbarians is just downright gut wrenching and utterly heartbreaking!’
“We still cannot tolerate ourselves in 2016. It’s a shame! Shame on all the idiots who cannot live with their neighbours in peace irrespective of tribal or religious differences. God neither sleeps not slumbers! While we are waiting and praying for God to visit them the way He deems fit, we must not relent in crying for justice because we, the people, are more powerful than we know! Make your voice heard! Loud it on all your social media handles and every platform available to you.’ Trust me, they hear us! I’m on an early morning road trip from Abeokuta to Lagos and I’m just enraged! Rest in the blossom of the Lord Eunice Olawale while we seek and ask for justice on your behalf. We must not relent!’” -Vanguard
