Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ethiope West Council Area of Delta State, Chief Dick Onisuru,
He was involved in a ghastly motor accident along the Agbarho/Ughelli section of the East-West road.
The accident occurred when the late APC chieftain was returning from Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, where he had gone on a private business trip.
The deceased last Sunday, it was gathered, held a stakeholders’ meeting of members, elders and leaders of the party in Ethiope West on how to strengthen the party ahead of the forthcoming council elections in Delta.
A chieftain of the party in the state, Enyowhara Omoghene,
told Punch that “Onisuru died in a ghastly motor accident on Wednesday 24th along Ughelli/Agbarho road on his way from Port-Harcourt.”
Omoghene lamented that his death was a big loss to his immediate family and the APC.
Acting Spokesman of the APC, Engr. Leonard Obibi, also confirmed the incident, saying Onisuru would be missed by party members.
