Mathew Achigbe (pictured middle), chairman of the Cross River state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is dead.

The party chairman died in a road accident along Afikpo road in Ebonyi state on Saturday.

Achigbe was said to have had the accident in his Toyota sports utility vehicle while on his way back from a church programme in Enugu state.

Two other occupants of the vehicle also lost their lives in the accident.

While confirming the development, John Ochala, vice chairman of the party in the state, said everyone had been in shock since the news filtered in.

“He went for a Catholic church programme and was on his way to Obubra when this incident happened,” he said.

“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.”

In August, Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the APC, inaugurated Achigbe as chairman of the state working committee (SWC) after the leadership crisis which rocked the state chapter of the party.
