A young Nigerian man identified as Ohida Ismail and his mother reportedly died following a fatal road accident in Okene, Kogi state.

It was gathered that the young man, a chattered accountant from Kogi state and his mum were coming from the hospital where he had taken his mother for routine medical checkup, when they got involved in the accident which immediately took their life.

The unfortunate incident reportedly happened in Okene on Monday, July 19th. According to a close friend of the deceased, Yushau Shuaib, the mother died immediately while Ismail passed away while arrangement was being made to take him to a better hospital.

A nephew to late Ismail, Baba Isyak also confirmed the incident in a post shared on Facebook today, Tuesday, July 20th.

“At this time yesterday Ohida Ismail was alive when he took his mother for a routine medical check-up. Unfortunately, while returning home after the check-up to prepare for Sallah festivity, the obedient child and beloved mother had an accident on the road,”

“Shuaib Bin Mohammed, his cousin, who always joins my family for Sallah, especially in preparing the Ram Meat, called to inform me that he had gone to attend to the accident victims in Okene.

By the time he got there the mother was died. While arrangement was being made to transport the son who was unconscious elsewhere for a better medical treatment, the son too died.

May Almighty Allah forgive their short-comings and grant them Aljannatul Firdaus. To @shuaibu bin Mohammed, family and friends, please accept our condolences even as we will surely miss you on today’s Sallah festivity, our prayers is for all of us because we have final destination in life.
