According to reports early Tuesday morning, Chinelo passed away due to the gunshot wound.
Reacting to news of her death, a friend said that she was set to leave Nigeria on Friday after resigning last month.
”Dr Chinelo was making an honest living, she was working at St Gerald’s hospital in Kaduna, she wanted more for herself and processed her papers to leave this hell-hole. She resigned last month to leave the country this Friday then this happened. Nigeria why???💔💔💔”, the friend wrote.

May the soul of Dr Chinelo rest in peace. May God console her family and friends. May everyone who mocked her, played politics with her death or falsely accuse other people of vileness over this issue be eternally disgraced.

That chinelo babe really died, just like that, gone?
The concept of life doesn’t always make sense to me, how does one live to a certain age and boom, just like that, you stop to exist and nothing can be done ?
God grant her family strength too
