The husband, Mr. Edet Umoh, also an ex-staff of the television station, passed on yesterday in Lagos, South West Nigeria, due to an undisclosed illness that kept him bedridden in recent weeks.

The couple got married in April this year at the Ikoyi registry in Lagos and has been living happily before tragedy struck yesterday.

Colleagues and friends have been sympathizing with the newscaster since yesterday.

She had worked for Galaxy and Business TV stations all in Lagos.
