Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada, rtd, has been flown to Abuja in critical condition,  following an auto crash which claimed the life of his Aide-De-Camp, ADC, Idris Muhammed in Lokoja Friday. It was learnt that he would be flown abroad when his condition becomes stable.

Already, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party has directed its members across the country to pray for his survival.

The party in statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh also expressed the party’s deep shock over the accident.

“Our great Party is yet to recover from a rude shock arising from a recent similar incident. We therefore wish to direct all our members to observe compulsory minutes of prayers for the speedy recovery of Governor Wada and to spare the Party from further painful incidents,” Metuh said, and prayed for the repose of the soul of the governor’s ADC  who died in the accident.

According to sources, the front tyre of the governor’s car pulled out while it was on high speed and the vehicle summersulted several times before ramming into an uncompleted building.

Wada who was returning from Ayingba after attending the Igala Summit was said to have been lucky to survive the accident as his official vehicle involved in the crash instantly became a scrap.

Saturday Vanguard was informed that Wada  who was in a haste to return to Lokoja, the state capital for the Friday Jumat prayer left Ayingba by 1.pm after asking his convoy of vehicles to speed up so as to meet the prayer session. However, the accident occurred at Eleta-Jimgbe (a suburb in Lokoja) which was about five minutes  drive to the Jumat Mosque.

”It was curious. Only the governor’s vehicle was involved; nothing happened to other vehicles in his front nor those at the back,” the sources added.

The source further said that the ADC who was not putting on his seat belt died on the spot as he was flung out while the Governor, his orderly and driver were treated at the State Specialist Hospital, Lokoja, before being flown to an undisclosed hospital in Abuja for further treatment. It was not known when he would however be flown abroad.

A statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Yabagi Bologi confirmed the incident but added that Wada was ‘’in a stable condition’’ just as he was being well catered for at the hospital, even as  a government house source told Saturday Vanguard said that ‘’all they are doing is just to get him stabilized before he is flown for better treatment.’’

  1. Hmmm! how come no “man of God” foresaw this? okay i get it; they were busy with Christmas merriment!

  2. Rushing to mosque…. Why…..? Just accept JESUS CHRIST AS Ur saviour and be save.

    • If he-jesus-could save others, then why could‘nt he save himself from being crusified and even was crying for help thus “O GOD WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKE ME? I advise u to accept islam b/s u regret.

      • You are a fool 4 making dis statement!!

      • Oluwarotimi Aderotimi

        @Ashirulbanin, it seems you read Bible to take what you want to take because you have allow devil to give you ‘a reprobate mind’. Everything that happened to Jesus is in fulfilment of the scipture as prophesied by the prophets. ‘He was taken like a sheep to it’s sheerer’. He has the power to command his angels to destroy his enemies but he prayed that ‘father should forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. Boko haram is enjoying this answered prayer even today. He took upon himself our sins and died in our place so that we will have live and have it abundantly. This fulfils the condition of God that the wages of sin is death. Be very sure that God wish no one should perish but have life in abundance and ‘no one can come to the father, except through Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life’.

      • Ashiru, was Jesus crying for help from mohammed? Pls always ask for interpretation. How one join a religion whose assumed prophet does’nt know his position in God’s paradise. You should accept Christianity or join your prophet of war and sucide bumbing in hell. After all, mohammed knew and acknowledge Jesus as a prophet sent by Almighty God but Jesus does’nt know mohammed! If you claim mohammed is a prophet: then he is a prophet of doom because non of the prophets starting from Ibrahim to Jesus knew mohammed as a prophet.

  3. Which one of the route is now secured for you people,Air is disaster,Good road,you didnt give us,I think you people should try water route which is the deadliest,God pass you people,am not celebrating your accident o,but the incident is telling you people to CHANGE FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS

  6. May Allah restore his health.

  7. Samuel Kunle-Oluwatobi

    May God save this man.

  8. May God restore his health, but it’s so sadening he hasn’t even spent 24 hours we are talking about a better treatment abroad. It’s indeed a shame. After 52 years no better health care.

  9. May Almighty Allah restore his health

  10. Why don’nt He_Jesus_save himself from dying,if truely is d God.haaya why don’t He save Yakowa of kaduna since he is a christian,i pray u shld undastd b4 it wil be to late.

    • ‘Thou shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free’. Many muslims are becoming christians because of their encountered with the Jesus. The only thing you can do with your boko haram is to carry bombs and guns to be killing in the name of your god-Allah- and his priest-Mohammed-. Accept Jesus as your Lord and SAVIOUR before it is too late when you will realize there is no, i repeat no 50, 70, 100, etc VIRGINS for you to f**k in your hell but deceit of the Kaaba idol.

  11. To make such a statements like “join your prophet in hell”, about islam, it means you know little about the religion. Please do not draw conclusions from only what you see and read in the media. Boko haram, al Qaeda etc are merely a tiny fraction of the millions of muslims of the world, who believe in peace, freedom of religion, justice and charity. Their methods are brutal and certainly do not represent any of the teachings of our prophet or our Lord God himself. Islam acknowledges Jesus(peace be upon him) wholeheartedly, the same way it accepts Moses(peace be upon him). The Quran came after the bible and is the reason Muhammad (peace be upon him) is not mentioned by name. In this trying time, let us try and encourage unity. Let us not let them win by creating false distinctions for we worship the very same God

  12. Sorry John Musa but that is a very ignorant thing to say. “Your boko haram”. Your god -Allah”. Its almost comical. You believe muslim are happy with what is being perpetrated’in their name’ and their reputation further tarnished? They do not represent the values of Islam. Please Educate yourself before making bold statements. Jews Christains and Muslims worship the very same God, Allah, Jehovah, Adonai. He has many names but one message. We were never meant to be all the same. White, black, indian, cuban, jew etc. We are to find unity in our similarities and learn from our differences

  14. Glory to God almighty for sparing his life. . One tin is certain. In everytin, dia is God. Let de wicked change from his wickedness and do Gud and de lord will forgiv him. Let dem repair our roads but if they refuse, and begin to fly, de God of justice, will cause dem to crash-fall back to de land and they may not survive it. Its only de wicked dat says in his heart dat dia is no God. Lets be wise!
