The Congress For Progressive Change (CPC) in Minna Niger state was on Thursday 6th of September 2012 throne into a state of mourning following the crushing to death of their Lawyer, Barrister Joseph Kolo by a falling tree.
The tree was uprooted during a heavy storm and crushed the car and the occupant who parked his car beside the tree on his way home from work to avoid being caught up in the storm. This step taken by 40 years old Joseph Kolo proved to be a wrong step as the tree fell down and crushed him to death in his care.
According to an eye witness, other trees were uprooted during the rain storm causing damages to buildings and other properties in the area. His corps has been deposited in Minna General Hospital morgue.
It could be recalled that there have been heavy rainstorm and flood in the area displacing people from their homes and killing many.
May the soul of Barrister Joseph Kolo rest in peace Amen.
