Here are pictures showing the moment the convoy of the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, including his backup car, was on involved in an accident yesterday in Abuja.
It was gathered that the governor’s car was already ahead to catch up with an appointment with President Muhammadu Buhari slated for 11am after maneuvering its way out of a gridlock on Jamata Bridge, along the Abuja-Lokoja Expressway.
It was learnt that the accident occurred along the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road, Abuja when a motorcycle rammed into the convoy as a result of which five cars in the convoy collided with one another.
It was learnt that the motorcyclist and two drivers in the convoy sustained injuries.
According to reports, the drivers and the injured motorcycle rider were immediately taken to the hospital for medical attention.
However, the governor’s Director General, Media and Strategy, Kingsley Fanwo, denied that the governor’s convoy was involved in an accident.
Fanwo said, “There was no accident involving the governor. He is at the Villa for a meeting as we speak; nothing of such. We thank members of the public for their concern. Thanks.”
