2 die in Ebonyi road accident en route APC rally



Two supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ebonyi State, on Wednesday lost their lives in a road accident.

The duo, a man and a woman, died on their way to the party’s kick-off rally that took place at Iboko community in Izzi LGA of the state.

Scores were also injured among the APC supporters who were in the vehicle heading to the rally.

The auto-crash happened just a few kilometres from the venue of the rally.

An eyewitness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to newsmen, said the accident occurred as a result of reckless driving by the driver hired to carry the supporters to the rally.

“One of the drivers was driving carelessly, and unfortunately collided with another car in an attempt to overtake, without minding his life and the passengers’ safety as well,” the first eyewitness explained.

“The victims of the accident had been taken to the hospital, but two persons, a man and a woman died instantly. It was a painful experience today,” the source stated.

The Ebonyi State Police Command spokesperson, Chris Anyanwu, has not issued a statement on the incident.
