The Acting Executive Director of Finance and Administration, Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Chief Ibanga Etang, is reported dead.
Amidst the rumour, it was learned that his office has been shut following the development.
Chief Etang was said to have allegedly passed on on Thursday morning.
Sources confirmed the development under strict warning not to be mentioned in this report.
When contacted over the development, NDDC’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Charles Odili, said he was not aware of the development.
He said “We (NDDC) do not have any report on that at all. We do not know anything about that, if we do, we will pass it to you guys.”
One of sources who confirmed the development said, “Nothing suggested he had any serious health concern yesterday. It was so sudden.
“There’s too much pressure with this unending NDDC crisis”
This is coming on the heels of the allegation of financial recklessness levelled against the commission’s IMC which the National Assembly had insisted to probe.
