Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has been flown abroad for further medical treatment after sustaining ‘minor injuries on his forehead’ in a car accident on Friday.
Mr. Okorocha was on his way to inspect projects in the state when a Mercedes Saloon car ran into his motorcade.
In a statement issued, Saturday, Chinedu Offor, the Commissioner for Information, Culture, and Tourism, stated that the state governor had completed his scan and his doctors announced that there was no internal bleeding, fracture of the skull, swelling, or vision problems.
“The head is still sore but, he just needs to rest his head,” the statement said.
“His Excellency genuinely appreciates the prayers and concerns of all Nigerians and Imolites. He says that he would be back to the country soon to continue his work,” it added.
Mr. Okorocha sustained injuries in the accident along Owerri-Orlu road and was first treated at St. Mary’s Children & Community Hospital, Umuowa, before he was flown abroad.
