Sapele – A woman, who is a member of a Pentecostal Church along Cemetery road in Sapele, Delta State, left members of the church shell-shocked after she collapsed and died during a mid – week service at the Church premises on Tuesday night.
The deceased, Mrs. Ese Kalu, a petty trader, was said to have attended church services that evening, full of life and was leading the congregation in praise singing when she suddenly fell down, clutching her chest.
A lady who claimed to be the late woman’s relative told Vanguard that she had no medical history.
“Ese went to church around 7pm. she was singing when she suddenly stopped and clutched her chest, before going down. Church members who took her to the hospital came back crying, they said she died before they could get to the Clinic” the source who craved anonymity said.
When Vanguard visited the deceased home, her husband who was in tears, described her as a pillar, saying “her death is still a shock to me” as he added amidst tears.
Her remains have been deposited in the Sapele Central Hospital.
