Tragedy has struck the All Progressives Congress (APC) family in Delta state, as former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Pastor Power Aginighan, is reported dead.
Aginighan reportedly lost his life in a ghastly road accident around the Mbiama end of the East-West Expressway on Friday alongside his son identified as Tammy and his police orderly.
Reports say the vehicle he was traveling with ram into a ditch while trying to dodge a trailer, summersulted and burst in flames.
An APC chieftain, Hon Ebiakpo Ezebiri was quoted to have confirmed the incident on Saturday, saying that leaders of the party had been trying to reach the deceased all through the day, but he was unreachable.
“We were together on Thursday when we hosted Professor Utomi. People were trying to reach him yesterday to get his attention on some matters, but he was unreachable, nobody knew he was dead. The accident happened during the day, but since they had been burnt beyond recognition, nobody could have known who was involved.
“He was in the vehicle with his son and his police escort when the accident happened just after the Mbiama bridge. Some of our people have already gone to the scene of the accident to retrieve the bodies. We are in mourning, this is very painful,” Ezebiri said.
