Tragedy hit the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs on Wednesday, with the death of its Director of Administration, Yusuf Nwoha, in an auto crash.
A source in NSCIA told The PUNCH that he had the accident in Okene on his way to Owerri, adding that other persons died.
A member of council in the NSCIA, Alhaji Ishaq Sanni, also confirmed the death of Nwoha in his tribute to the deceased.
He said, “Ina lillah waina ilaehi rojihun. What a season of death, what a season of sadness! Alhaji Yusuf Nwoha, the Director of Administration in the NSCIA, also left us today. He died in a motor accident in Okene on his way to Owerri to observe the Eid. Yusuf is unequivocally one of the best among us. He accepted Islam in the early 80’s and acquired the knowledge of Islam with the speed of sound.”
