The fiancé of the late Immaculate Okochu who was killed by a truck on Wednesday at Badore in Ajah area of Lagos State is mourning her.
Ms Okochu was on her way to work when a truck collided with the motorcycle she was on.
The 24-year-old who had her introduction in March was scheduled to get married in October. Until her death, she worked at one of the outlets of Cold Stone Creamery.
Her fiancé identified simply as Loveday said in an Instagram post on Friday that they were supposed to go shopping on Saturday for their wedding.
“The life is meaningless until you make my life meaningful how can you leave like that? The drinks for your bride price is ready (sic). Oh baby we are supposed to go shopping tomorrow for our wedding. I tried to save you but I was too late,” he wrote.
Loveday narrated his reaction when he was informed of the accident.
“I was told you had an accident I was on my way. There was traffic I drop from the car and start running looking for you so I can take you to hospital, I ran and ran until I saw you oh baby you were gone,” he wrote.
Loveday assured he would always visit her grave and leave her pictures on the wall.
In another post, he said on the day of the incident, she had promised to return home at 5pm so she could cook.
Okochu’s friend and wedding planner Lucy Ibe told BBC Pidgin that she was notified of the incident by someone who called her with the victim’s phone.
“She (Immaculate) died yesterday (Wednesday) on the Badore Road. She was first taken to a hospital in the area, and from there, she was referred to the General Hospital, Marina,” she said.
“When I got to the hospital, she was still inside the boot of the vehicle that brought her receiving drip and she was not even attended to until she died.”
