She suffered an asthma attack and was immediately rushed to the hospital after initial interventions had failed; She died before getting to the hospital.
Mrs Igwe is survived by her husband of 21 years Charles Igwe, three children, an aged mother, siblings and a large extended family.
She was an accomplished writer, producer, director, entrepreneur and teacher.

May her soul rest in peace.
