Contrary to news reports, Nigeria’s Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, was not involved in an auto crash.
Reports had emerged on social media that Osinbajo’s convoy was involved in a crash along airport road Abuja.
But his spokesman, Laolu Akande, said the VP only stopped at the scene of the incident to lend assistance to a citizen who was involved in an auto crash.
Akande further stated that Osinbajo has arrived Owo in Ondo State, where worshippers were heinously attacked and killed at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
Akande wrote, ”On his way to the airport this morning, VP came across a road traffic accident, stopped to lend assistance, & ensured the victim was taken to the hospital with VP’s convoy ambulance.
VP’s security and medical teams assisted in removing the victim from the crushed vehicle resulting from a somersault and transported the patient to the Airforce base hospital.
It was a solo accident.
