Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a heart-wrecking video of a little girl who was calling on her father from his obituary poster went viral.
In the video which was shared on Twitter via Chris Osa Media, the little girl was seen pointing at her late father's poster on the ambulance and calling out 'daddy'.
After getting no response, the little girl ran over to the front of the car where another poster was pasted and attempted to call him again, oblivious to the significance of his passing.
