 Faith Ariwera Chuku
23-year-old Faith Ariwera Chuku who was was shot dead by unknown gunmen along Emohua-Elele-Ahoada Road, Rivers State, has been laid to rest on  Saturday, September 10, in Port Harcourt cemetery after a funeral service at Living Hope Baptist Church, Elelenwo.
Faith was one of the hundreds of Rivers pupils sent abroad by the immediate past Chibuike Amaechi administration under the now rested Governor’s Special Overseas Scheme of the Rivers State Sustainable Dev.Agency(RSSDA) and returned to help her parents raise money to continue further after Governor Wike’s government allegedly announced a cancellation of all forms of Academic Scholarships in the State.
She made first class in Medicine from The University of Newcastle, UK and was on her way to Abuja in company of her mother to renew their UK visas when she was killed

Someone wrote;
Dear Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike,
LATE FAITH ARIWERA CHUKU; ONE DEATH TOO MANY:
His Excellency, this is not another of my usual criticism of what our state has become under you, it is also not another political post as such, but a deep cry from a very sincere heart.
As you may well note, this would be the first time I would be addressing you as ‘His Excellency / Governor’.
It is a testimony of the seriousness attached to the issue under consideration.
The lady whose pictures appear below is one of the hundreds of Rivers pupils sent abroad by the immediate past Chibuike Amaechi administration under the now rested Governor’s Special Overseas Scheme of the Rivers State Sustainable Dev.Agency(RSSDA). I hear she made first class in Medicine from The University of Newcastle, UK.
As you read this Sir, the sad news is that she is no more, a bright star is no more, such a shining example of the human potentials of our state has been sent to the world beyond at her prime. Sir, the very sad news is that she was shot along the now infamous Emohua-Elele-Ahoada Road in Rivers State on her way to Abuja to new renew her visa for a possible return to the UK.
I also hear she’s the only daughter of her widowed mother(not so sure), who bore the difficult brunt of seeing her daughter through school after your government announced a cancellation of all forms of Academic Scholarships in the State. Reports say she had returned to help her family raise money with which to proceed to Medical school,sadly, her return has cost her life, what a loss His Excellency!
