The Chief Security Officer to the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Mr. Tony Iwelu died on Monday, February 17, 2020 of electric shock from a shower rose in Stone Edge Hotel, Kaduna, where they were lodged after an official assignment.

A statement from the Head Press and Public Relations unit of the ministry Mr Eric Ojiekwe stated that Iwelu was until his death, in charge of the Minister’s security; a job he did with utmost professionalism.

“There is no gainsaying that the professionalism he brought to bear in the discharge of his job, sustained him for over two decades in the service of the minister.

The late Iwelu who hailed from Delta State will be greatly missed, as friends and colleagues have being expressing shock and utter disbelief since the incident took place.

They described him as a vibrant, honest, kindhearted, loyal and an easygoing young man who was conscientious in the discharge of his duties.

He left behind a young wife and three children; the eldest being 14 years.

We painfully accept this divine reality and pray God to grant his gentle soul eternal rest.
