Barely a year after his boss was involved in a ghastly motor accident on Lokoja-Ajaokuta road, Kogi State deputy governor, Arc Yomi Awoniyi, on Sunday escaped unhurt in an accident which involved his convoy on the Abuja-Lokoja highway.
The deputy governor was returning to Lokoja after attending a wedding ceremony of the son of his predecessor in office, Hassan Salau.
A statement by the deputy governor’s Press Secretary, Michael Abu, said an escort van in the convoy ran into two stationary vehicles which were involved in an earlier accident.
The affected vehicles, a Mercedes Benz jeep, with Lagos registration number, YAB 966 AQ and a Honda Accord with Lagos registration number LND 742 BE had earlier collided before the van ran into them near Kwali.
The statement added that injured persons, including those in the escort van along with four policemen, were receiving treatment at the Kwali General Hospital.
