The way vehicles attached to convoys of public officials ply our roads with break neck speed and their attendant risks to other road users was once again brought to the fore on Sunday as a nursing mother was reportedly knocked down by an ambulance attached to Governor Idris Wada’s convoy.The unidentified woman was returning from church riding on an okada when the ambulance in a bid to catch up with the governor’s convoy which was returning from Odu, in Dekina Local Government Area where he had gone to monitor the council polls, rammed into the okada rider with his passenger, a woman and crushed her from behind; killing her instantly.

However, luck smiled on her three-month-old baby who was said to have survived the incident.

The okada rider, who sustained injury and was said to have been immediately rushed to a private clinic, gave up the ghost on Monday.

However, in reaction to the incident, the governor stated that the ambulance was not a part of his convoy when the accident occurred.

Special Adviser on Media to the Governor, Mr Jacob Edi, said that the accident occurred when the okada rider conveying the woman suddenly rode into the expressway.

Jacob Edi, in a  statement, said immediately the governor was briefed in his residence about  the sad incident,  he expressed shock and ordered that the child and the okada rider be taken to the specialist hospital and be given the best medical attention.

Meanwhile, the child was said to be in a stable condition.
