Tragedy struck on Monday as members of the All Progressives Congress from Imo State travelling to Abuja for the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly on Tuesday died in an auto crash.

Our correspondent gathered that the bus they were travelling in had a head-on collision with another bus at Agbor in Delta State.

Several sources told our correspondent that three persons in the bus were confirmed dead while others, who sustained varying degrees of injury, were rushed to the hospital.

According to sources, two males from Amaraku community in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of the state and a female from Ogbor community in the same Isiala Mbano LGA died in the auto crash.

A chieftain of the party, who doesn’t want his name in print, said that the victims were coordinators  for the senator-elect for Imo North, Patrick Ndubueze, and House of representatives member-elect for Okigwe North Federal Constituency, Mirriam Onuoha.

The source said, “They were travelling in two buses. It is a sad development. The party is saddened by the development. It is a sad commentary and we pray God accept their souls.”

When contacted, the spokesperson for the APC in the state, Cajetan Duke, confirmed the sad development, noting that only two persons had been confirmed dead by the party.
