The convoy of Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello was on Monday morning involved in a ghastly car accident before the Permanent site of University of Abuja.
The mishap occurred when the convoy ram into an Okada rider and the passenger. No information on the condition of the victims at the time of this post.
According to witness, who preferred not to be named, said: “On my way, I just saw their vehicle drive past me on very high speed. The way they sped past me nearly threw my car off the highway; that was after general market. However, not up to five minutes afterwards, I saw two of their cars in a big gutter beside the highway.
Another thing I saw was that there were three guys that were trying to capture the incident and some men in black gave them the beating of their lives. I was able to capture the incident because I used the background camera on my phone.
“Another guy that came to plead with the rescue team to use their ambulance to assist the two guys was also beaten mercilessly. From what I saw, they were seriously wounded. However, no one died.”
“I stopped to inquire what happened and I learnt a motorcycle crossed them, but because of the high speed, they couldn’t control the car and that resulted in the accident. So, what I saw was that two guys — one on the bike and the other in a white bus — were left unattended to. Meanwhile, the rescue team focused on those in the entourage of the convoy and attended to them immediately, but left those two others unattended to.
