A family spokesman, Abubakar Aliyu said the 36 year old politician was returning from Abuja to Kogi with his younger brother when the chattered vehicle they were riding in got involved in the accident. All occupants in the car died.
According to Aliyu:
“Omeiza spoke with his father around 1.30pm Saturday few minutes into the ill fated journey and barely half an hour, we received the shocking and sad news of his demise from Samaritans at the scene of the accident. From the report we received none of passengers on the ill fated Sharon car survived and they have been given mass burial at location at Jere town”.
Speaking on his children’s death, Alhaji Momoh Jimoh Aliyu said he has taken the incident as an act of God.
“I have accepted it as an act of God. They are from God and they have returned to Him at appointed time and on our part we have accepted it as an act of God,” he said.
