Nigerian novelist, Buchi Emecheta dies at 72

Nigerian novelist, Buchi Emecheta, passed away on Wednesday, 25th day of January 2016 at the age of 72 in London. Emecheta who was born in Lagos on 21 July 1944 and has published more than 20 books throughout her career with her notable literary works on Second class citizen, Joy of Motherhood, Efuru and The Bride Price and so many more.

 Nigerians who schooled in this country from around the 80s would have read Emecheta's books at least in Secondary School while preparing for WAEC and NECO. 
May her brilliant soul Rest In Peace.
