According to a report in Premium Times, a family member stated that, “Omeiza (the late politician’s son) spoke with his father around 1.30 p.m. on Saturday few minutes before the ill fated journey. We received the shocking and sad news of his demise from samaritans at the scene of the accident.”
Father of the deceased, Jimoh Aliyu, said that he has accepted the accident as an act of God.
“Allah has done what’s best and suitable for us and we should be grateful to Him,” he said.
