scene of the accident
Details were hazy at press time. When Vanguard called the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Angela Agabe she said she had no signal on the incident.
According to her, if the mother of the President’s wife was involved in an accident it would not be hidden, adding that the Police would have been contacted long ago.
A source from Okrika who spoke to the Vanguard said the deceased might not be the biological mother of Mrs Jonathan, adding that the first lady probably took her as a mother
“I am not sure she was the mother.  But she probably chose to call her mother”, the source said.
Effort to get the state government comment on the sad incident was not fruitful as text messages sent to the mobile line of the Chief Press secretary to the governor, Mr Dave Iyofor and the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs Ibim Semenitari were yet to be responded to.
