Ekere was leading an entourage to receive Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in Calabar, Rivers State, when the incident happened along Calabar-Itu Road.

It was gathered that while one of the policemen in the convoy and a tricycle rider died on the spot, another policeman was said to have breathed his last at the Intensive Care Unit of the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital.

The Director, Corporate Affairs, NDDC, Mr. Toye Abosede, said the managing director of the commission was not hurt in the accident.
