Jonathan Escapes As Two Escorts Die In Abuja Road Accident



Two persons in the entourage of President Goodluck Jonathan died on Wednesday in Abuja after a convoy crash but multiple sources disclosed that the former president was not touched in the accident.

The ex-President and his wife, Patience, have been to the emergency unit of the National Hospital, Abuja where all victims were evacuated to.

Although Jonathan was not admitted into any of the units in the hospital, some members of his team were critically injured in the accident.

According to sources, the convoy was involved in an accident while returning from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja to his residence in the Federal Capital Territory.

Jonathan had barely returned from an international assignment when the accident happened.

The Federal Road Safety Corps, which confirmed the incident, admitted that two people died in the accident.

The spokesman for the FRSC, Mr. Bisi Kazeem confirming the accident involving the convoy of Jonathan, said: “Two people died in the accident. It was the ex-President’s convoy that was involved but he was not in the car that had the accident.”

A reliable source at the National Hospital told The Nation that “former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife were not involved in the accident but two of his mobile policemen were the ones involved in the accident.

A former Minister said: “It was a minor crash which did not affect Jonathan in any way. He was not hurt at all.”
