Following an automobile collision on Wednesday along Onuebonyi Road at Sharon Junction in the Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, at least two supporters of the All Progressive Congress were thought dead.
According to information obtained, the party supporters were travelling in a bus with a charter from Onitsha South Mass Transit.
They were rumoured to be travelling to Iboko, the secretariat of the Izzi council, where the APC governorship candidate for the state, Francis Nwifuru, launched his campaign on Wednesday.
Investigations established that the victims passed away immediately after the horrific accident’s effect. A guy and a lady were claimed to have been the victims.
Others equally sustained varying degrees of injuries.
According to an eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the accident occurred as a result of the carelessness of the drivers.
“One of the drivers was moving carelessly, but unfortunately for him, he collided with another car in an attempt to overtake without minding his life and that of passengers.
“I learnt the victims of the accident had been taken to the hospital, but I’m sure two persons, a man and a woman died instantly. It was a painful experience today,” the source said.
Efforts made to reach the Ebonyi State Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission failed.
A new Sector Commander was said to have been transferred to the state and would not make any comment, currently.
