Heartbreaking! 20-year-old Pretty Cancer Victim Has Final Wish Fulfilled as She 'Dies Beautiful' (Photos)

Talking of dying beautifully, a young cancer sufferer has had her final wish fulfilled by her family members after passing away in a beautiful way.

A 20-year-old girl, Racine Pregunta, was diagnosed osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, last October, has had her final wish fulfilled after passing away 'beautifully' earlier this week.

According to Metro UK, the young cancer sufferer who lost her battle on Monday in Davao City, in the southern Philippines, had her family fulfilled her final request by making sure she was buried the way she wanted.

It was gathered that few days before she died, Racine told her family: ‘If I die, I want to die BEAUTIFUL’.

She asked to wear a special dress, a floral headband and make-up and left behind burial instructions so her farewell was just they way she wanted.

Sharing her sister’s requests on Facebook, Rolyn said Racine requested for her ‘personal make-up artist’ to do her make-up, to wear a white off-the-shoulder dress and a white flower headband.

She also wanted something violet, blue and mint green, which was represented in her funeral flowers.

Rolyn wrote: ‘Today, request fulfilled and there all I see is you, smiling. On the way to the sunset, friends and family gathered and bid their last farewell to Racine who now sleeps beautifully forever. You will always remain in our hearts.’

INEC Staff Sent to Jail in Asaba...You Won't Believe What Her Offence is

A staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission has been sent to jail after committing a really grievous crime.

Justice O. Efreti Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Asaba, Delta State has ordered that Mrs. Fidelia Omoile , a serving Independent National Electoral Commission’ s ( INEC) official in Isoko- South Local Government Area of Delta State, be remanded in prison custody following her arraignment on Monday, on a two- count amended charge, bordering on conspiracy and money laundering, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Omoile was docked for allegedly collecting the sum of N112,480,000.00 (One Hundred and Twelve Million, Four Hundred and Eighty Thousand Naira), as a bribe during the countdown to the 2015 Presidential election.

She was among the over 100 INEC Officials that allegedly collected part of the $115million (N23bn) disbursed by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison- Madueke, during the countdown to the 2015 presidential election.

Omoile was arrested on 11 April, 2016 following an intelligence received by the EFCC on the activities of some INEC Staff, who allegedly connived with some Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), in defrauding the Federal Government huge sums of money, running into millions of Naira.

She allegedly received N112.4million as bribe during the 2015 general election. Count one of the charge read: That you Fidelia Omoile on or about the month of March, 2015 at Asaba within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did conspire among yourselves to receive cash payment in the sum of N 112,480,000.00 (One Hundred and Twelve Million, Four Hindered and Eighty Thousand Naira only) exceeding the statutory limit without going through a financial institution and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 18 (a) of the Money laundering (Prohibition) Act 2012 as amended and punishable under Section 15 (3) and (4) of the same Act.

Count two of the charge read: That you Fidelia Omoile on or about the month of March, 2015 at Asaba within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did receive cash payment in the sum of N112,480,000.00 (One Hundred and Twelve Million, Four Hindered and Eighty Thousand Naira only) exceeding the statutory limit without going through a financial institution and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1 (a) of the Money laundering ( Prohibition) Act 2012 as amended and punishable under Section 16 (b) and (4) of the same Act.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to her. In view of her plea , prosecution counsel, Sadiq Hussaini, asked for a trial date and sued that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.

However, counsel to the defendant, K. O Obamogie, made an oral application for bail of his client and urged the court to grant his prayers. Hussaini opposed his prayers.

In his ruling, Justice Abang turned down the defendant’ s application for bail, directing that the aplication be filed formally.

He also adjourned the matter to 6 June, 2017 for hearing and ordered the defendant to be remanded in prison custody pending the determination of her bail.
