The last few days have been some of the toughest in the lives of Mrs. Ndidi Ejimba and her three children Since the shocking demise of their breadwinner, Dominic, on the evening of Saturday, August 19, 2017.
“My husband came back to the shop at the end of the first half of the match between Arsenal and Stoke City to urinate,” 32-year-old Ejimba, who is carrying a fourth child, revealed.
“He promised to be back at the end of the match, telling me how his club would win. But about 20 minutes after he left to watch the second half of the match, somebody rushed to the house to inform me that he had slumped at the viewing centre and that he was being rushed to a hospital”.
“At a point, one of our neighbours, who was among those that rushed him to the hospital, told me to go back to lock the shop and get a vehicle we could use to transfer him to another hospital”.
According to him, the hospital he was rushed to couldn’t handle the situation. I never knew it was a trick to send me away from the place because all that time my husband was already dead,” she said
Watching Arsenal play was his life,” Ejimba interjected sharply.. “He would rebuke and sometimes ignore me whenever I told him to reduce his obsession with Arsenal.
He loved the club so much. He was ready to chase his customers away and lock up his shop just to watch the team play. For the 10 years that we were married, he never stopped watching football matches involving Arsenal”
