A cleric identified as Pastor Aimola John has reportedly slumped and died shortly after joining Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC political party.
The Pastor was said to have been rushed to the hospital yesterday but he was pronounced dead on arrival.
He was a former chairmanship candidate for Owan East Local Government Area of Edo State.
Former Secretary of Owan East, Mr. Godwin Imoudu having confirmed his death, said late Aimola was in Benin to defect
to the APC when the incident happened.

He was said to have defected from the APC in 2015 alongside Pastor Ize-Iyamu to the PDP and was among former PDP
members that returned to the APC at the residence of Ize-Iyamu where he slumped.
Ize-Iyamu was expelled following his refusal to confirm or refute his rumoured defection to the ruling All Progressives
Congress (APC). He was expelled from participating in any PDP related activities with immediate effect.
