Minister of state for Labour and employment James Ocholi (SAN) is dead. He died in a ghastly motor accident on his way from Kaduna to Abuja on Sunday.
The minister’s wife and son were also in the ill-fated car including his aide-de-camp.
The son also died in the accident, a witness confirmed to our correspondent. The wife is said to be in coma. The witness said the accident was caused by a burst rear tyre.
A witness who didn’t want to be mentioned told that the accident occurred some 45 kilometers from Kaduna town where the car was coming from.
Their remains have been deposited at a community hospital near the accident scene, he said.
