RIP…Rhythm 93.7 OAP Iphie Shot Dead




Rhythm 93.7 FM Port Harcourt on-air personality, Ifeoma ‘Iphie’ Aggrey-Fynn, was shot dead by armed robbers on Tuesday along Aba-Port Harcourt expressway, The Cable reports.

She was reportedly shot in a public transit bus as she was returning home from visiting her parents in Aba.

Some people who survived the attack told newsmen that the robbers opened fire on the bus as soon as the driver realized they were robbers, and attempted to escape.

Iphie, who was also a writer and motivational speaker, passed away just a few days to her June 8th birthday.

Our condolences go out to her family and loved ones.

      @ N.M, I know you mean well but I can tell you as someone who has lost a child, a parent never moves on after the loss of a child. Your child will always and forever be a part of you. What does happen as time passes, is that instead of the sharp pain in your chest that feels like being stabbed in the heart over and over again, the pain may fade to a dull, throbbing pain.

    so young so vibrant and beautiful. RIP.

    nigerians robbers pls there’s no need to carry guns or shoot people when u go out to rob.

    if u shout at us in a very commanding voice, we would give u our belongings with out struggling.

    nobody needs to get hurt or die, just take what u want and leave.

    but just know if we catch one of you, u will receive the beating of a your life that day. idiots.

      Hmmmm.. the guns would definitely scare us into submission. However, cctv & other advanced technology is needed all over Nig to trace & catch such lazy pepole. Forensics involvong finger prints etc.

      I have a dream that one day Nigerians would be scared to steal bcos the law would catch up with the even if its 30 years after the crime.

    Dear President Buhari,
    I hope you will look at incidents such as these when dealing with security within Nigeria as a whole. The toll on this economy of the theatrical elections have taken us back to square one. It is now Boko Haram and armed robbers. Thank you.

    This is a waste of life!!!!
    May she find rest in Gods sight.
    Robbers there are many other legit way of making money than killing people and endangering your selves!

    If you are reading this please i beg you to have a change of heart.. Accept that little job and God will bless you in it.

    Sad that the NYSC member has been missing at Ore after a robbery attack.

    how do you sleep peacefully when the money you have or your happiness is as a result of taking someone’s life or happiness? It is written: love your neighbor as you love yourself or treat others the way you would want to be treated. it is so sad!!!

    This is really sad.
    How will her parents feel on hearing this? How on earth can they be consoled? A young promising child?
    At times like this what can one do or say that will make sense to the parents?
    Dear God by your Mercy give the family the heart & spirit to bear this loss and to move on. May God in his mysterious ways bring Joy back again into her family.
    May God keep the rest of us in peace as we go in and out daily.Amen

      Your comment is very unnecessary. What has this got to do with Nigerians and people “not wanting Nigerians”? Why are people so unreasonable and insensitive?
      This post is very sensitive, if you’ve got nothing logical to say, keep it moving. You need to be mindful when commenting on topic like this. Your comment is absolutely illogical.

      This is undeniably sad. RIP girl. I hope God gives your family the strength to bear the irreplaceable so loss. It is indeed a tough one to swallow. ?

      ‘Blah blah blah Nigerians are this and this is why the world hates you…’ Yes, we have heard. And yet here you are on Bella Naija right on cue. Your country no get blog? You’re inconsiderate and uncouth, and if this is all you have to say after reading this story then you must be either a sociopath or extremely unbright, both of which are equally offensive. Your country should seize your passport sef for the criminal act of stupidity. This isn’t even the right space to express myself properly. Let me catch you in the comment section of a more cheerful post…

      No one wants us yet here you are on a NIGERIAN blog. Just shut it if you have nothing positive to say. What a total idiot.

    Another unnecessary loss of life!
    And it could have been anyone.
    To think these people have families, come from families. What kind of homes and society raises these people? We’ve turned a blind eye to ill-gotten wealth so no one really cares as long as you’re rich. The beauty of wealth is in the dignity and sweat, the success stories behind it, the inspiring tales.
    If you have a friend or brother or boyfriend that’s into a fraudulent business eg “yahoo” and you know and eat out of it, you’re guilty too. He is an armed robber too. Someone may have committed suicide because they lost all their hard earned fortune to them. That’s stealing and killing.
    A wasted bullet, a wasted life.
    God grant her family, friends, fans, the fortitude to bear the loss.
    RIP Iphie

    That Port-harcourt is a deadly zone. A lot of killings happen during election and are still happening. Killing people anyhow like spraying mosquitoes. Silence is no way better, at least boko haram zone is better with much attention now. You get the feel, that’s how bad it is in port-harcourt. Stats wise
