The Omoyele-led African Action Congress, ACC, has announced the death of three of its members from Delta State.
The men were returning from an outreach effort related to State AAC activities when their car fell into a river on a particularly bad stretch of road, claiming three lives on the spot.
Sowore is gunning for the office of the president on the platform of the ACC.
A statement personally signed by Sowore, described the incident as a dark time for his party.
He said, “At this dark time, we mourn the loss of these brave men, and ask all of our members to pray that their patriotic and revolutionary souls rest in peace. The deceased include Pastor Jones Abushe, Mr. Edris Sani, and Mr. Ernest Omamode Ojegba – all of them people who were tired of the status quo in their state and seeking to bring about positive transformation.
“We also use this opportunity to remember and pray for their families that they might find the strength to bear this tragic loss.
“Even as we mourn, it is essential that we support the families during these trying times, so we ask for donations for the families and funeral arrangements. A little will go a long way in bringing comfort to the survivors of those we have lost.”
