A Pan-African community built to connect and build the capacity of young entrepreneurs and professionals, AGS Tribe, has raised N22 million from members of the general public, for the education and upkeep of the two kids of Olamide Alli and Chris Ndukwe who lost their lives in a suicide-murder incident.
PageOne.ng recalls that on Sunday 21st June, Olamide Alli was brutally murdered by her fiancé and father of her kids, Chris Ndukwe.
Chris Ndukwe took his own life by drinking two bottles of sniper insecticide, immediately after murdering Olamide, leaving their two kids behind.
Last week, AGS Tribe confirmed that Alli was one of its members and called on Nigerians to assist the children who are now orphans.
According to the founder of the group, Ifedayo Durosinmi-Etti, who spoke with The PUNCH, their target was to raise N20 million for the children.
Durosinmi-Etti disclosed on her official Instagram page on Tuesday 30th June, that the target had been surpassed by N 2million.
She went ahead to thank well- meaning Nigerians who donated.
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 N 20 m as a target , I was scared .
“After we got to N6 m , 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 added that the funds raised would be managed by First Bank of Nigeria’s Quest Trustees.
