Okechukwu Nathaniel, the 21-year-old designer who lost his life as a result of the hijacked #EndSars protest after tweeting ”Nigeria will not end me” has finally been laid to rest.
Oke was hit by a stray bullet during the endSARS protest a few hours after making the controversial tweet.
Oke’s girlfriend, Derin, took to Twitter to share an update of his funeral.
She shared photos from the burial and wrote ;
Laid my baby to rest today🕊⚰️.
In those last minutes, I kept waiting for him to come back to live.🥺
Oke and I weren’t just lovers. We were friends. Good friends. Best friends. Partners. We did everything together. We loved each other so much and never failed to express it everytime. We were our relationship goals. I’m glad he got to experience real love and I’m glad I got to experience him.
Today gave me strength. Seeing Oke lying in state gave me my closure. I’m grateful we got the opportunity to finally lay him to rest, he deserves to rest well. I’ll miss him. I’ll miss him so much but all will be well. He’s with the Lord now. 🥺
‘Til we meet to part no more Oke, rest in peace my babe🤍🕊 I love you
