Here lies the remains of Master Victor Ekong Okon-Iquo, an indigene of Okobo Local Government Area, knocked down by Obong Nsima Ekere’s convoy while the APC guber candidate was heading to Oron L.G.A yesterday, Wednesday.

Eyewitness account has it that the young lad was on his way home from school at about 1:00pm when he got hit opposite Ubongabasi Nursery/Primary School, Oti Oro, Okobo L.G.A. The victim died on the spot.

Some members of Ekere’s entourage reportedly deposited Victor’s corpse at the mortuary.

Investigation into the ugly incident is still ongoing and I will bring you more details subsequently.

However, I wish to state that this is nothing close to propaganda, neither is it a fabrication for political reasons. There are no excuses for driving recklessly and claiming lives of innocent citizens while on political campaigns. There is need for parties to conduct themselves appropriately.

Okobo people are rising to condemn this sad loss and the vibes will soon be felt.
