A young Nigerian Chiedu just died, a vibrant one, one of those that was filled with the energy of the body and mind. The hurt of losing a vibrant young Nigerian under preventable circumstances is one of sadness, gloom and anger for the system that permits such. A system that sees no dignity and respect for human life; one that makes no effort to set preventive measures to stop deaths, evil and accidents from happening.

It is this same hurt that consumed me when Aluu4 happened in Rivers State. That case was painful because just like Chiedu today and every other young Nigerian who dies unfulfilled, it could have been anyone, it could have been me or any members of my family. It is this system that keeps consuming and sending our young Nigerians to the grave untimely, cutting short destinies, shattering dreams, expectations of friends and family.

This same hurt for Chiedu is what I felt some 4 years ago when Alozie Awuzie my friend passed on in a motor accident caused by bad roads and delayed attendance by medical personnel. It is this same hurt that consumed many young Nigerians about Eric, a talented songwriter who was cut short by similar circumstances. It is this same hurt that consumed me and my peers from Federal Government Boys’ College, Abuja for the loss of Kennedy Kenechukwu just last year while serving his country.

The hurt consumes all, it consumes anyone who understands what it means to lose a loved one, family, friend or a person whom you have made plans to do greater things in the future. The hurt is real for those who are humane in mind and spirit and it is high time we start showing our humanity as a people by setting measures to prevent untimely deaths. Every death trap from the past needs to be fixed, dealt with, addressed and shaky grounds made stronger.
