It was a harvest of tears.

Engineer ThankGod Ifeanyi Onyia was a pastor with Redeemed Christian Church of God in Enugu.

But he was also senior staff of Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN. His world crumbled on June 10, 2018.

He was travelling along the popular Ugwu-Oyeama, old Enugu-Onitsha Expressway in his car when he had a head-on collision with an 18-seater  bus.

It was fatal. Engineer Onyia, his wife, Chinwe and 5 Children; Chizitelu, Kamsiyochukwu, Chinezendu, Sobechukwi and Chiemerie Onyia all died.

Even his God-Daughter, one Miss Favour, who traveled with them, didn't make it out alive.

At the funeral which held in his home town in Udi, Enugu, his colleagues described him as “Oga Thorough” as he was outstanding in his job.

“You were an astute climber, a brave lines man, a profession that even soldiers will not dare to try,” they said.


*The final resting place of the deceased

The mother of the deceased man was overtaken with grief.

Bounce News correspondent, who was at the funeral, said she had to be taken away from the house as she couldn't bear the sight of burying her only son and her grand children.

May God accept their souls in his bosom. Amen.

Don’t forget to pray for the repose of their souls and to share this story with your friends and family.
