Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has described the death of Kaduna State Governor, Mr. Patrick Yakowa, former National Security Adviser (NSA), Gen. Andrew Owoeye Azazi and others in a helicopter crash as devastating, saying “I am still in shock.”
Reacting to news of the deaths, Governor Uduaghan said that it was a big blow to the country particularly given the caliber of all people involved.
