Ebonyi State representative at Miss Tourism Nigeria 2016, Maureen Onu, has been reported dead.
Maureen Onu reportedly drew her last breath in the early hours of Thursday morning.
According to the CEO of the Miss Tourism Nigeria Organisation, Mr Santiago Roberts, the brand lost a true and great gem. He went further to describe Maureen as “always prompt to carry out instructions and/or tasks, giving and willing to learn. She was looking forward to representing her state with pride during this year’s finals and with the hopes of becoming the first ever national tourism queen from Ebonyi State.”
The Organisation has promised to redesign the content of the event to honour the lost contestant.
