SAD! Heavily Pregnant Nigerian woman And Her Kids Stranded In The US After Husband's Sudden Death (Pic)

A seven-month pregnant Nigerian woman named Oluwayemisi Adepegba, is currently stranded in the United States with her two children, after her husband, Tunde Adepegba, suddenly died in a bus. The family was only a few days old in the United States.

Mrs. Adepegba, who has two daughters aged two and eight, had barely spent 12 hours with her husband when he was picked up dead inside a metro bus on the 26th of April, 2017.

The late Adepegba, a computer systems analyst, suffered a suspected heart attack while inside a metro bus in Annapolis area of Maryland and died with no help until the bus driver got to a final stop and came for him.

The late Adepegba’s burial will cost about $10,000, which the wife does not have. A gofundme account has been set up for her husband burial.

A deputy editor with ThisDay newspaper, Olawale Olaleye, who has been part of the fundraiser, wrote on his Facebook wall:

   ''This is no good news but a time I need the Nigerian in us to act true to type. Sadly, he left behind a pregnant wife. It is such a pathetic situation. But we can’t go on and on brooding over what we can’t change. This is an appeal for his burial, which is a bit expensive in the U.S and of course, whatever is left of this will be given to the pregnant wife.''

A columnist with the newspaper, Adeola Akinremi, who is  in the US and has seen the family of the deceased, said:

   ''It is a sad story.  The is probably the first place to start, but you can also reach out to the woman directly.''

Mrs Adepegba and her children are in Randallstown, Maryland, United States, where a Good Samaritan is accommodating them. She can be reached by email on
