The state chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River, Dr Matthew Achigbe, and his wife were on Saturday, involved in a Fatal accident.

Achigbe died in an auto crash along Afikpo Road in Ebonyi State in the early hours of Saturday while on his way back from a church programme in Enugu State.

He reportedly died alongside other yet-to-be-identified occupants in his Toyota Sports Utility Vehicle. The state party Vice Chairman, Mr. John Ochala, said the news came as a rude shock to party members.

He said, “He went for a Catholic Church programme and was on his way to Obubra when this incident happened. He was to meet with the party leaders in Obubra Local Government Area and the leaders were already gathered and waiting in his house when the news filtered in that he had died in a fatal road accident. Everybody is in a state of shock, we cannot make any comment for now.”

Late Achigbe hails from Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State and until his death, was the factional APC chieftain in Cross River State.
