Oshiomhole escapes death as two security aides die in road crash

Former National Chairman, All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole

Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole’s convoy was on its way to Usen to join the APC campaign train for the September 19 Governorship election when an articulated vehicle lost control and ran into the former governor’s convoy near Oluku junction in the Ovia North-East Local Government Area of the Edo State.

The accident caused the death of two policemen attached to Oshiomhole which was confirmed on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and also prompted the APC candidate in the forthcoming election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to call off his rally at Usen.

Victor Oshoke, Oshiomhole’s media aide disclosed this development in a statement, adding that two other persons sustained varying degrees of injuries in the accident.

Oshoke’s statement partly read, “Some minutes after 12 pm today Tuesday, September 1, 2020, there was a motor accident involving the convoy of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, along Benin-Lagos by-pass before Oluku junction”.

He reported that the other two that sustained injuries, though in critical conditions, are receiving treatment at a hospital in the state and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and other persons in the convoy, apart from those indicated above, did not sustain any injuries.

The case has since been immediately reported at the Ekiadolor Police Station, and investigations are ongoing.
