A 50-year-old woman, Adenike Adewusi Adewunmi, has died following pregnancy complications after 20 years of trying to get pregnant with a child and deliver the same.

Adenike, who had waited for two decades for the fruit of the womb, finally conceived but unfortunately died with the pregnancy.

She was said to have complained of shortness of breath on Thursday morning, April 13, and died before she could get to the hospital.

Friends have since taken to social media to mourn the deceased, whom many described as a boisterous woman who was always spreading love.

Taking to Facebook, a close friend of the deceased wrote:

“I have seen her everywhere, 33 of my friends know her, and I have looked at her over and over but can’t recall meeting her at any point in my life. She waited for 20 years for a miracle child and just days to beholding the day of glory she exits.


“She was said to have developed pre-eclampsia and complained of short breath. She still posted yesterday.

“I have questions but no answers. My heart is very heavy. My prayer is that the Lord will receive her soul and make her rest in peace. To everyone grieving right now…may the Lord comfort everyone.


“Goodnight, sister Adenike Adewunmi-Adebisi”.

Another friend, Rita Egwu, wrote: “All Adenike Adewunmi Adewusi, owner of nikkiworld blog wanted was a child of her own. For 20 years, she waited. She finally got pregnant. This morning, she complained of shortness of breath and died before she could get to the hospital.”


“Her plan was to celebrate the birth of the baby with her 50th birthday later this year. May her very gentle soul rest in peace. Survived by sister, Adejoke, and Toba.”
