The former governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, has lost his second son and his nephew in a fatal accident in Texas to the cold hands of death.
Family sources reveal that the governor’s son, Osaretin Igbinedion and nephew, Esosa Oyemwense, were involved in a ghastly car accident around 3am on Saturday, February 16.
The car they were in was said to have run into an 18 wheeler.

The news of their death was confirmed by the Nigerian Students Association of the University of Houston.
The statement issued by the students association reads:
“Good evening, we are deeply saddened by the passage of Esosa and his cousin Osaretin, early this morning. We extend our deepest condolence to the individuals, friends and other loved ones. Having young lives taken so suddenly takes a toll, and we send our thoughts and prayers to all affected.”
