The foremost Ijaw musician, King Dr Robert Ebizimor, was on Thursday evening killed following a ghastly motor accident along the Warri/Ughelli highway.
Ebizimor was on his way from the federal capital, Abuja in order to meet up with the thanksgiving service which planned to take place in his community, Angalabiri in Sagbama local government area of Bayelsa state Saturday.
The thanksgiving was meant to thank God for his survival following the amputation of one of his legs due to diabetes.
His car was said to have ran under a stationary trailer parked by the road side. He was said to have died with his driver on spot.
Reacting to his death, Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson while expressing shock at the death, announced that the maestro will be given a state burial.
