Igwe Ezeugwu Ugwuoke of Agbamere clan in Eha-Alumona in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, died in an auto crash on Tuesday.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in Enugu State, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed this in a statement released in Enugu on Tuesday.

He said the accident happened on Tuesday at about 2.55 p.m. It involved a water tanker registered as XA 405 ENU and the traditional rulers’ car which claimed the life of the Enugu monarch.

“There was a head on collision between his Hyundai Elantra car with registration number HRH 183 ENU and the said water tanker.

“The royal father was coming from Odenigbo Road to Total Round-about in Nsukka where he allegedly veered off his lane and reportedly collided with an on-coming water tanker.

“He (the royal father) was rushed to Bishop Shanaham Hospital, Nsukka where he was confirmed dead by a doctor on duty,” Amaraizu said.

The statement said that the body of the royal father had been deposited in the same hospital’s mortuary.

“The police have already started investigation into the accident,” it said. (NAN)
