Edo commiserates with families of dead Libya returnees

Edo State government yesterday commiserated with families of some Libya returnees who were recently involved in an auto crash along the Ore-Ijebu-Ode Sagamu Expressway, Ogun State. Eight of the returnees had lost their lives in the carnage, which occurred on Tuesday last week. A statement signed by the Secretary to the state Taskforce Against Human Trafficking, Abieyuwa Oyemwense, said the incident was sad and unfortunate, but prayed that God grant the families of the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss. The statement said: “We are informed that the incident took place at about 10.45p.m. last week close to Omoo River, J4 area of the route. There was a collision which involved a white Toyota Hiace, 18-seater commercial bus, with registration number, AYB 497 XA and another vehicle, a blue and white Volvo truck with registration number, KSF 79 XL. “The Edo State Task Force Against Human Trafficking (ETAHT) commiserates with the families of the Edo State returnees who were involved in the fatal accident on Tuesday along Ore-Ijebu-Ode Sagamu Expressway in Ogun State.” The statement added; “The returnees involved in the road mishap had been profiled by the taskforce and were duly informed of the details relating to the payment of their stipend, skills and empowerment training packages put together by the Edo State government for them. “The returnees involved in the accident had left the welcome-back facility set up by the state government to welcome Libya returnees who are indigenes of Edo, on the claim that they are going to their respective homes to reunite with their families, only for them to embark on an unauthorised journey at night.” CREDIT: https://newtelegraphonline.com/2018/01/edo-commiserates-families-dead-libya-returnees/

COMMENTARY

“If a leader accepts himself as already dead to society, there will be no reason for cowardice in his leadership.”

“It is said that the 1966 coup that failed was strictly an Igbo coup, but then the irony of history is that it was the late General Aguiyi Ironsi, an Igbo who single-handedly dismantled the coup in Lagos, while my humble self, another Igbo-man rendered it immobile in the north.” Odumegu Ojukwu
