A former caretaker chairman of Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo local government area of Ondo State, Yetunde Dada is dead.
Mrs. Dada, a senior member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was killed in a ghastly car accident on along Lokoja-Abuja road on her way to Abuja on Tuesday.
Six other persons also died in the auto crash.
A few years ago, the former council chairman and a few other party chieftains survived an accident, but they were unfortunate this time.
Meanwhile, the PDP’s state chapter is mourning the loss of one of its members.
The party in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Ikantu Peretei described her death as a rude shock.
The statement reads, The anguish and pain occasioned by this death is indescribable. The torrent of tears since the news broke have been uncontrollable across the length and breadth of Ondo State.
“May God Almighty grant her immediate family, her extended family, the people of Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo/Odigbo Federal Constituency, and indeed the entire PDP family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
