Family says late minister's death is suspicious

Late James E Ocholi answers questions from senators during the ministerial screening.
The family of the late minister of state for labour, James Ocholi (SAN) has called on the Federal Government to investigate the cause of their son’s death.
The alleged that the accident was a plot by evil doers to kill their son, and derail the Buhari led administration.

The family members also called on the government to investigate Ocholi’s driver, who they accused of uploading the pictures of the late minister and what was left of the car, on the internet.
Punch reports that Ocholi’s uncle, Abdallah Aliu said “There was a kind of foul play in the whole exercise, which is very worrisome. Apparently, the driver who drove the car was the same person who took the photo of the dead man and sent it all over the Internet – whatsApp and others. So, the question is: how come that the driver of the vehicle in the same car was able to take the picture of the dead man?
“The side of the door, where the Honourable Minister sat, was not properly locked because after the car somersaulted, the thing flung him and so he had a terrible and fatal damage that his body was beyond recognition. There was a foul play in Ocholi’s death.”
The late minister’s uncle also said “While I was in his house, I already knew because those who conspired and plotted it (the death) became jittery because I have never been to that house and they don’t know me. But somehow, they became jittery, scared and worried.

“This thing they did is political, it is a political war and some people want to score some political points against the system somehow. The death of Ocholi is quite suspicious.”
“So, I had to hurriedly leave because God has made me to know what happened and we know that they will get the people who are responsible. When you are innocent, God will always uncover how certain things happened. Ocholi’s death is a great loss to the common people of Nigeria. And the spirit of the common people of Nigeria is fighting back.
“The perpetrators want to derail the focus of this administration. They are looking for every way to put a wedge in the wheel of success. I can specifically pinpoint those who plotted these things. What they are trying to do now is to knock heads together and the earlier we get rid of them out of that place, the better,” Aliu said.
On his part, the minister of labour, Senator Chris Ngige promised to look into the matter.
Late James Ocholi died in an auto accident along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
