•Blessing Agbomhere

Former All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Edo state, Mr Blessing Agbomhere has narrowly escaped an auto crash on the busy Abuja-Lokoja expressway.

At least three persons were burnt to death in the ghastly motor accident while five others sustained severe injuries in the accident which occurred on Thursday, August 23.

A grateful Agbomhere, a (PDP) House of Representatives aspirant for Etsako Federal Constituency, Edo state said that it was the grace of God that survived him from the fatal crash.

Narrating his ordeal, the former deputy-director of Buhari Support Organisations (BSO) explained that the accident was caused by the dilapidated road coupled with the reckless driving of a Scania Truck and Mack Tanker, both trying to overtake each other.

He said: “I am so grateful to God Almighty for sparing my life after my vehicle somersaulted thrice. By just viewing the pictures to see the badly damaged Land Cruiser Jeep alone, you will agree with me that God did wonders.

“I was on holiday to my hometown to celebrate Salah with my people, while returning back to Abuja, this happened”
Agbomhere, appealed to family, friends and teeming supporters to remain calm as he is presently responding to treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
