THE remains of the late Chukwuka Amah, also known as Chuka or Chu Chu and a twin brother of Okwuchukwu Amah have been laid to rest in his country home, Urhuabor Uke, in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra state at 45.
It was observed that the funeral attracted many friends of the deceased both his fellow residents in Port Harcourt, others from Lagos and Abuja, including his age grade ‘Ofu Obi Age Grade’ who came to commiserate with the family and also described him as a kind hearted man and a jolly good fellow before his death.
In an interview, the elder brother of the deceased, Ikechukwu Amah, expressed his sadness over the death of his brother whom he said was a good man, adding that he was impressed about the turn up of people during the funeral.
He said, “I never expected such turn up. It gave me joy and i am taking the consolation that people came to pay him last respect. My brother was a very humble, peaceful and loving person. He was so nice that one of my nieces called him ‘Aunt Chu Chu’ because he cooked very well and did a lot of house chores and even changed her diapers.
The group that just displayed their dance were his age grade, including other representative of all the villages who came to pay their condolence. I think we should learn from the life he lived. Those wishes that he may not have seen come to pass, we should try and fulfil them in his memory”.
The wife of the twin brother of the deceased, Lady Ngozi Amah stressed that her husband was inevitably absent due to the customary nature and what the land entails. She prayed for the grace of God to be upon them as they fill the vacuum left by the deceased.
She also appreciated the masses, who took out time from their busy schedule to commiserate with them and further prayed for continuous blessings of God and good health even amid COVID 19 second wave.
