He is feared dead, alongside governor of Kaduna State, Patrick Yakowa.

YNaija can however confirm that both men were seen boarding a helicopter to leave the event after a goodwill message from the Bayelsa governor. They were on their way back from the burial for the father of presidential aide, Oronto Douglas – Pa Tamunoobebara Douglas.

Guests at the well-attended event included the governor of Bayelsa state; Christian Association of Nigeria president, Ayo Oritsejafor: Airtel chairman, Oba Otudeko, Guy Murray-Bruce; Nollywood stars Dakore Egbuson-Akande and Rita Dominic, amongst others.

  • It’s quite unfortunate for a peacefulman like Gov Yakowa to go early leaving on accomplished works and projects behind. May his soul and that of others rest in perfect peace. Amen.
