Kogi Speaker involved in auto crash, police escort dies instantly
Barely a week after the Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada, was involved in a road accident that claimed the life of his Aide-de-Camp, the convoy of the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Lawal Jimoh, was involved in another ghastly motor accident, which killed a police escort instantly.
Jimoh was travelling to his home town in Okene, according to reports, when a heavy duty truck ran into his escort van at Osara, along Okene road.
The Speaker’s vehicle, was however not affected in the accident, but a police corporal Lamidi Akeem, who was in the affected vehicle, gave up the ghost at a hospital on Thursday.
Austin Akubo, the Speaker’s Chief Press Secretary, confirmed the incident and emphasised that Jimoh’s car was not affected in the crash.
