The Cross River State chapter of the African Action Congress (AAC) has described the demise of it’s organising secretary, Mr. Ogbudu Damian Otobi as heart wrenching and a grief too much to bear.
Mr. Ogbudu, a multimedia entrepreneur and Chief Executive Officer of MADE Studios died in a car accident along the Ikom axis of the Calabar – Ikom – Katsina-Ala highway on Saturday.
And, a statement signed by the convener of the #TakeItBack movement in Cross River State, Mr. Agba Jalingo said his death came at a time his services to the nation was needed the most.
The AAC described Mr. Ogbudu as a “calm, kind hearted and straightforward man whose core values did reflect the true African anthropology as he never indulged in conversations or activities that are inimical to the growth of anyone and the society he lived in.”
The party also said, “his virtues and peaceful disposition was also displayed in death as information available suggests his life ended while protecting that of another; a rare act of bravery and love for fellow man in our societies today.”
The statement further read: “Indeed, the Heavens gained an Angel and the earth lost a rare gem. We can only console in the fact that he is in a better place now.”
Also, the AAC prayed God to grant his family, friends and relatives, the fortitude to bear the loss as well as the repose of his soul.
