President of the the pan-Ijaw socio-cultural organization, the Ijaw National Congress (INC), Senator Tari Sekibo, Monday slumped and died, throwing Ijawland into mourning.

No one could immediately confirm the cause of his death, but sources say the INC president who died at 70, might have died from heart related ailment.

Senator Tari Sekibo, an Okirika high chief from Rivers State was in Yenagoa ahead of the planned executive council meeting of the INC slated to hold at Ijaw House when he slumped and was reportedly rushed to the Federal Medical Centre where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The meeting, it was learnt was to deliberate and take a position on the crisis rocking the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide which recent national convention is now a subject of litigation.

“We were to meet in Yenagoa and move to Port Harcourt on Tuesday (today) to meet with aggrieved IYC presidential aspirants and inform them of our decisions. It is unfortunate that all the plan would be set aside,” a member of the INC NEC told Vanguard.

Confirming Sekibo’s death, Publicity Secretary of the INC, Pastor Victor Burubo, said, “We have just heard the news that we have lost our President. We don’t have enough details but he died in Yenagoa. We are arranging to move to Yenagoa and get enough details on the sad incident.”
