Following the death of Former Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, James Ocholi, Federal Road Safety Corps, has commenced investigations into his death.
This was confirmed to Punch by the Assistant Director, Information and Protocol, National Hospital, Abuja, Dr. Tayo Haastrup, on Tuesday.
Dr. tayo, revealed that the driver of the SUV Ocholi, his wife and son, were killed in has been interrogated while on his hospital bed at the National Hospital Abuja.
Oh yes, we received the FRSC today (Tuesday) in connection with the accident. They also visited the driver and the security detail, where they questioned them on the cause of the accident.
The investigation was said to have commenced after the brother to the deceased revealed that he suspects foul play in the death of Ocholi.
Abdullah Aliu, Ocholi’s brother said:
There was a kind of foul play in the whole exercise, which is very worrisome. Apparently, the driver that drove the car was the same person that took the photo of the dead man and sent it all over the Internet, what’s app and social media. So, the question is: how come that the driver of the vehicle in same car was able to get himself and take picture if the dead man?The side of the door where the minister was sitting was not properly locked because after the somersaulting of the car, the thing flinched him off and so he had a terrible and fatal damage that his body is beyond recognition. There is foul play in Ocholi’s death.While I was in his house, I already know because those who conspired and plotted it became jittery, because I have never been to that house and they don’t know me. But somehow, they already became jittery, scared and worried. This thing they did is political. It is a political war and some people want to score some political point against the system somehow. The death of Ocholi is quite suspicious.
I want to dismiss that thought of foul play, investigation and suspicion. These are not Godly thinking. If you accused the driver, the driver was not outside the car before the accident occurred.Those stories are wrong, I don’t support the impression that we are going to do investigation. We should stop voodooism in our national life but ensure that ministers get the best attention and our roads are fixed. I believe that this is of the devil. This is to turn attention away from the issue.I do not believe in that suspicious theory. I do not support investigation. They should bury Ocholi quietly.
