A devastating hit-and-run incident has claimed the life of Sunday Agara, a journalist and Ministry of Information staffer in Ebonyi State, as he made his way home from his farm along the bustling Trans-Sahara African Highway.

Sampson Nwafor, head of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), expressed deep sorrow over the untimely death of Sunday Agara, labeling it a “painful” and “regrettable” loss for the media fraternity.

Tragedy struck when a reckless driver mowed down Sunday Agara, who was riding his motorcycle along the highway, leaving him fatally injured in the wake of the hit-and-run accident.

The NUJ chairman, Sampson Nwafor, expressed his deep sadness at Agara’s passing, pointing out the alarming frequency of road accidents involving journalists, citing the recent near-fatal crash of Simon Ezaka on the Abakaliki-Afikpo express highway.

The NUJ statement said that Agara was one of the best public relations officers under the Ebonyi state government’s employ where he demonstrated competence and dexterity in the discharge of his duties as a PRO.

The Ebonyi NUJ chairman further maintained that, as a Unionist, he contributed immensely to the growth and stability of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Ebonyi State, through his active participation in the Union’s activities and programmes.

The deceased was a staff of the Ministry of Information and State Orientation, Ebonyi State, deployed to the State Ministry of Power and Energy as a Public Relations Officer.
