The Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada, was involved in a ghastly road accident some minutes ago, citizen reporters informed Ekekeee. The governor was said to be badly hurt and is currently in the intensive care unit of a hospital in Lokoja, the state capital.
The Aide-De-Camp to the governor, who was part of the convoy, died instantly.
Our sources who were witnesses to the accident told us they were willing to assist but for hostile mobile policemen who were ready to shoot at anybody who went near the crashed vehicles.
Mr. Wada was said to be on his way back to Lokoja from a function in Ayingba.
The accident is coming just days after the governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa, and a former National Security Adviser, Andrew Azazi, both perished in a helicopter crash in Bayelsa State.
