A young Nigerian medical doctor has died on her way home, barely two days after completing her mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.

Doctor Urenna Samuel Iroegbu was declared dead at the hospital after a big truck ran into her car while returning to Akwa Ibom State after her service in Port Harcourt in Rivers State.

Iroegbu graduated from Imo State University last year after spending eight years studying medicine. She passed out from the NYSC programme on Thursday, July 16, 2020.

On Saturday, she boarded a Toyota Sienna commercial vehicle to Akwa Ibom, but never made it home. The vehicle she was in was said to have driven against traffic shortly after a heavy rain around 4pm.

A lorry, which had the right of way, was said to have rammed into the vehicle which Iroegbu was in along Onne road, Rivers State.

A police officer told The PUNCH: “There were two Sienna Toyota minivans headed towards Akwa Ibom. Around Daewoo just long Onne Road, a trailer had broken down on their lane so they decided to drive against traffic.

“One of the Sienna minivans was the vehicle in which the doctor was in. A lorry which had the right of way did not see them on time, lost control and rammed into them.

“Good Samaritans took them to a hospital. Three of them were taken to Sonabel Hospital around the trailer park while Dr Iroegbu was transferred to Morning Star Hospital, Onne. She died at midnight.”



KanyiDaily had also reported how a female National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member identified as Amaka Asikaogu was found dead mysteriously at the New England Hotel in Abuja, just a few days to the end of her service.
