A video heart melting video of Dr. Chike Akunyili buying a woman’s entire wheelbarrow of plantain only to support her has been shared online 6 days after the gruesome murder of the good doctor in Anambra on 29th September 2021.
The video was shared by one of his daughters, Chidiogo Akunyili on her IG page in honour of her late father Dr Chike Akunyili.
Chidiogo explained that her father Dr. Chike Akunyili was on his way home when he saw the woman but he didn’t have cash so he continued home, took some money, and returned to buy her entire wheelbarrow of plantain just to support to woman. She wrote;
The load of our grief is lessened by videos such as this. The story goes that on his way home, he saw an old woman with a heavy wheelbarrow full of plantains. He continued home, got the needed cash and came back to where she was, and proceeded to buy all her plantains.
He counts out the money to the soundtrack of her cries of joy and blessing as she dances away. “Nothing is as good as giving joy,” he adds, a happy smile on is face.
Thank you all for your condolence messages in this time of immense mourning. Our joy is to know that we do not grieve alone, and our hope continues to be that his death not be in vain.
