Abuja - Labour Minister James Ocholi's last surviving son, Aaron, has revealed how he would have also been involved in the accident that led to the death of his family had it not been for a dislocated arm that he sustained during a football match.
According to a Leadership report, Minister Ocholi was forced to leave his eldest son behind while making arrangements to attend a thanksgiving service in Kaduna.
The deadly crash is said to have occurred while Minister Ocholi and his family were on their way back from the service.
Aaron, a young lawyer who is also a member of the Nigerian Bar, has since vowed to sustain his father's legacy within the legal profession.

Meanwhile, Minister Chris Ngige has hinted that the Federal Government may immortalise Ocholi while signing a honorary condolence register opened at the Ministry in Abuja.
Ngige declared a day of mourning and a work-free day for staff at the Ministry yesterday, adding that Ocholi might be immortalized due to the fact that he passed while in active service.
According to Ngige, the Labour Ministry would take care of the remaining members of Ocholi's family and his staff members who sustained injuries during the fatal crash.
