Governor Hope Uzodinma has expressed deep pain over the tragic death of some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Imo State, who lost their lives on Monday on their way to Abuja for a national engagement.
Governor Uzodinma, who described the ugly incident as sad and unfortunate, also commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives.
Recall that two members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State have died in a road accident in Agbor, Delta State.
The Eastern Updates had earlier reported that the APC members were traveling to Abuja for the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly on Tuesday, June 13.
He also prayed, on behalf of his family, the people, and the government of Imo State, for the quick recovery of the injured ones who are recuperating in the hospital.
The APC Publicity Secretary in Imo State, Cajetan Duke, confirmed this in a telephone interview on Tuesday morning.
He said apart from the two victims, about six persons were critically injured and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
According to Duke, about 18 APC supporters boarded a bus from Owerri to Abuja to show solidarity with National Assembly members-elect of the party’s extraction who will be inaugurated on Tuesday.
