Late Aginighan, a chieftain of the Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the paper said leading up to his demise on Thursday was at a meeting of the party.

“We were together on Thursday when we hosted Professor Utomi. People were trying to reach him yesterday to get his attention on some matters, but he was unreachable, nobody knew he was dead. The accident happened during the day, but since they had been burnt beyond recognition, nobody could have known who was involved,” it quoted the state Treasurer of the APC, Hon Ebiakpo Ezebiri, as saying.
