Details have emerged of how Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State in South-South Nigeria miraculously escaped death yesterday in a road accident.
Details provided by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Prince Kassim Afegbua, said Comrade Ohiomhole’s aide-de-camp (ADC) and driver, as well as the driver of the bus that rammed into the governor’s official bullet-proof car, equally escaped unhurt in the accident which occurred at Ewu village along the Benin – Auchi Road in the state.
Afegbua, who gave an account of what happened in a statement, said the accident occurred around 9.45 a.m. when the governor was returning from his village, Iyamho. He said the car was damaged beyond repairs after a Peugeot J5 bus with registration number XB 355 Fugar, conveying tomatoes and plantains, lost control and rammed into it.
Afegbua said: “The Peugeot J5 bus was following a truck that was descending the Ewu slope when it suddenly veered off into the governor’s lane from the opposite direction and directly impacted on the governor’s vehicle, apparently because of brake failure.

“The good story is that nobody sustained injuries in both vehicles. The Comrade Governor is hale and hearty, his ADC and other occupants of the Peugeot J5 are also in good condition.
“This is to assure all good people of Edo State that there is no cause for alarm. Their loving Comrade Governor is fine, hale and hearty as well as other occupants of the other affected vehicle. The Comrade Governor is wishing everyone a prosperous new year.”
