January 1 2020 was a day of celebration for a lot of people worldwide. Sadly, it was a day of agony for a Canada based Nigerian woman identified as Uche Osagie.
Uche who has been distraught since 6 days ago has finally garnered strength to speak about the ordeal she can never forget in her lifetime.
The former mother of three young children revealed that she was travelling to file an appeal for permanent status when the fatal auto crash happened.
According to CTV reports, Uche left Nigeria, 8 years ago, with her two oldest children for a better life in Canada, but was having difficulties acquiring permanent residency.
She says in mid-December, 2019, she had received a letter that her second appeal had been denied, so she travelled to Toronto to get a lawyer to file a federal appeal.
The distraught mom says the family was returning home to Chelmsford when the car she was driving hit a rock-cut, killing her children, Britney, 6, Flourish, 10, and Destiny, 11.
Police have not yet determined what caused the vehicle to leave Highway 17 and crash into the rock cut.
Speaking on one of the reasons why she pushed further on the appeal of her residency status, Uche said;
My son Destiny said ‘no, I’m not going back to Nigeria. I want to live in Canada. I would rather die than be deported.’ Today, my son is going to be buried in Canada
