Rev. Ben Ubeh, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Taraba, died on Sunday in an auto accident on the Zing-Yola Road.

 

The Vice Chairman of CAN in the state, John Aina, confirmed the incident in Jalingo. 

Ubeh, who died in the early hours of Sunday, was on his way to Yola for an official engagement.

Rev. Peter Gambo, who was travelling with the late chairman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the incident happened when they parked to buy some drugs in Zing town on their way to Yola.

Gambo, who is the state Chairman of the NLC, explained that the deceased also stepped out of the vehicle at Zing.

“We parked to buy drugs, the  CAN Chairman too came out and stood at the back of our Toyota Hilux van when suddenly a truck came from behind and crushed him.

“I am still in shock over the incident, but I have come to terms with the fact that God knows best,” he said.

Gambo said Gov. Darius Ishaku immediately sent a delegation to Zing which helped him to evacuate the corpse to Jalingo.

The corpse had since been deposited in the morgue of the State Specialist Hospital, Jalingo.

Ubeh, who was elected CAN Chairman in Taraba in 2016, is also the General Overseer of Army of God Glorious Ministries.

Gambo added that burial arrangements would be announced later. (NAN)
