Group raises N22m for children of woman killed by fiancé

AGS tribe, a pan-African community founded to link and build capacity for young entrepreneurs and professionals, has been able to raise N22 million from members of the public for the education and care of two young children who have recently lost both parents to an incident involving a murder-suicide in Lagos.

On 21 June, Olamide Alli was murdered by her fiancé, Chris Ndukwe, who also took his own life and left two children behind.

Ndukwe reportedly stabbed the 25-year-old with knives to death and committed suicide by consuming a liquid that was accused of being insecticide.

AGS tribe, which announced Alli was one of its members, had called on Nigerians last week to support the children who have become orphans.

The group 's founder, Ifedayo Durosinmi-Etti, had told newsmen the goal was N20m.

However, Durosinmi-Etti said on her official Instagram handle on Tuesday that the target had been surpassed by N2 m.

She thanked well thought-out Nigerians for their donations.

Durosinmi-Etti wrote,

“Exactly a week after the first announcement, we have been able to surpass our target. This is actually wild! I don’t have the words to describe how I feel. When I announced the N20m as a target, I was scared.

“After we got to N6m, I started having heart palpitations. I don’t even know why but even more fear set in. The devil can try to steal from us but he will never succeed. Because of you all, those kids and their generation have a guaranteed future, at least financially. May God give them guardians and good earthly parents that will bring out the best in them.

“God bless everyone that was part of this journey! All your reposts, forwards, encouragement and contribution brought us this far! You will never be close to any tragedy all the days of your life and you will always find favour in all you do.”

She said the funds raised would be managed by First Bank of Nigeria’s Quest Trustees.
