Senator Godswill Akpabio has returned from a medical trip to the United Kingdom. The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State traveled abroad for treatment following a car crash which he was involved in last month.
Akpabio, who is currently the Minority Leader of the Senate, was involved in a car accident on his way to the airport to catch an international flight on August 31. His car ran into a convoy of some United State’s embassy officials while trying to beat the traffic light.
Although the occupants of the vehicles in the convoy of the US embassy and Akpabio’s driver did not sustain any injury but the senator suffered some injuries in the chest region.
The accident reportedly happened near the Bolingo Hotel, along Abuja Airport Road, in the Central Business District of the FCT, from where he was rushed to the National Hospital, Abuja for an intensive care.
