Rev Gambo said that the state governor, Darius Ishaku, immediately sent a delegation to Zing to evacuate the corpse to Jalingo; and it has since been deposited in the morgue of the state specialist hospital.
Rev. Ubeh was elected CAN chairman for Taraba State in 2016 and is the General Overseer of Army of God Glorious Ministries.
