So sad!! In order to preserve another person’s child’s life, he lost his child.The family of Chief Chijioke Uwah, has been mourning since 15th December 2017 following a serious road accident that killed 13-year-old Chijioke jr, son of Esther Uwah one of his Chief Chijioke’s wives.
The fatal accident happened after the Peoples Democratic Party PDP convention which took place in Abuja, as he set out for Enugu from Abuja with five of his children on 15/12/2017. It was reported that the family left Abuja at the early hours of 4:00 am and had already passed Lokoja and Anyimgba in Kogi state when suddenly an unguided infant was crossing the highway.
In a bid to avoid hitting the child, the driver (Chief Chijioke Uwah) hit the brake immediately and at the same time turned the steering as the car somersaulted and threw away the son out from the smashed window.
The little boy died on the spot whereas all other occupants of the vehicle came out unscratched except Chijioke Uwah senior who sustained injuries especially on his head.
The boy will be laid to rest on Wednesday 17th January 2017 at Ebonyi state.
