The Holy Bible is apt in its assertion that there is but a step between life and death.

This best explains the shocking death of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN Taraba State Chairman, Rev. Dr. Ben Ubeh who died in a motor accident along the Zing-Yola Road on Sunday.

An eyewitness who was travelling with the CAN Chairman, Rev. Peter Gambo, told Punch correspondent that the incident happened when they parked to buy some items in Zing town on their way to Yola, Adamawa State.

Gambo, who is the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress, explained that he (Gambo) was not feeling fine and that when they got to Zing, they parked for him to get some drugs when the accident happened.

“We parked to buy drugs and the  CAN chairman too came out and stood at the back of our vehicle (a Toyota Hilux van) we were travelling in when suddenly a truck came from behind and crushed him.

“I am still in shock over the incident, but I have come to terms with the fact that God knows best,” he said.

The late Rev. Ubeh was elected as the CAN Chairman of Taraba State in 2016 and he was the General Overseer of Army of God Glorious Ministries.
