Chief Ibanga Bassey Etang, the acting Director of Finance and Accounts of the Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC), is dead.

He allegedly took ill and gasping for breath at about 2 am Thursday before being rushed to the hospital.

He was reported to have died at the Braithwaite Memorial Hospital (BMH), in Port Harcourt.

According to multiple reports, the cause of death is yet to be determined.
