Presidency Debunks Report Of Osinbajo’s Accident

The Presidency has debunked reports making the rounds that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was involved in an accident on Abuja Airport Road.

Rather, the Vice President stopped his convoy to rescue people who had been involved in an auto crash along the airport road on Monday morning in Abuja.

Other Nigerians joined Osinbajo and his security aides to pull the victims from the vehicle that was involved in the accident.

Mr Osinbajo’s spokesman Laolu Akande also confirmed that the Vice President was not involved in any accident but that he was on his way to Ondo on a condolence visit and has proceeded on his trip.

In a tweet, Mr Akande wrote that “On his way to the airport this morning, VP came across a road traffic accident, stopped to lend assistance, & ensured victim was taken to the hospital with VP’s convoy ambulance. “He then proceeded on his trip and is now in Ondo State heading to the site of yesterday’s attack in Owo.”

In another tweet, Mr Akande released photographs of the scene of the accident where the Vice President’s medical and security teams intervened and removed the lone victim from the crushed car which somersaulted on the opposite side of the road and got stuck on a tree.

He said that the victim had been moved to an undisclosed hospital.

Recall that a witness sent in a video from the scene, initially saying the crash was the vice president.

It was not immediately clear the severity of the accident on the victims involved.
