The APC in Edo state is mourning the tragic loss of one of their own. Mr Ibrahim Mohammed, a party youth leader was killed in a car crash yesterday, Thursday February 4th 2016.
Mr Mohammed was on his way to Etsako Local Government Area when the accident occurred.
Leaders and party members of the APC, attending a party meeting at the secretariat at Agenebode, the administrative headquarters of the local government, received the tragic news with shock and disbelief.
“No words can describe the sorrow and sadness I feel at this devastating loss” reacted a visibly shaken Mr Godwin Obaseki of the APC.
“Ibrahim Mohammed was a hardworking and dedicated young man who had a way of connecting with the youth in Edo state in an impactful manner. He was a valuable member of the APC and we already feel his loss greatly. Our hearts go out to his family and we commiserate with the APC and the entire youth and people of Edo State on this tragic loss.”
The meeting was subsequently postponed in respect for the dead and members returned to their different locations.
Mr Obaseki paid a visit to the site of the accident to take an on-the-spot assessment of the wreckage and thereafter continued on his journey to Benin.
The party leadership announced that a new date for the meeting will be set and communicated to members.
