The story about the death of Abuja lawyer, Roseline Udoh, first broke December 10, on a Facebook group called ‘Due Process Advocates’ (DPA) and Peace Ben Williams Blog was the first blog to carry the story a few minutes later.
It was revealed that Miss Udoh had publicly published a comprehensive funeral wish on Facebook.
Eight days later, Nigeria’s largest blog on Instagram, Instablog9ja carried her story and wrote,
“A year after revealing what she wants at her funeral and 4 days after posting about the shortness of life, Nigerian lawyer, Roseline Udoh, 38, dies.”
While some believe she must have been suffering from a terminal illness and saw her death coming, others believe spoken words are powerful and negative declarations should be avoided.
To be honest, there are several passages in the Scriptures where we are warned about the power of the tongue. In the secular world, we often hear: “Be careful what you wish for.” But how seriously should we take these warnings?
