PHOTOS: Amosun's Convoy & CBN Bullion Van In Accident

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Thursday, narrowly escaped unhurt when a convoy of bullion vans belonging to the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN rammed into the governor’s convoy on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The incident, which occurred at Ibafo, while the Governor was traveling to Lagos for an official assignment, saw the CBN convoy damaging the escort vehicle in the governor’s convoy.

The CBN convoy, driving dangerously, attempted to overtake the governor’s convoy without regards for the safety of other road users. | More photos...




On sensing danger, the Ogun Governor’s escort commander used a public address system mounted on his vehicle to warn the CBN convoy to desist from such reckless driving.

Not only was the Governor’s escort commander ignored, the CBN convoy drivers went ahead to crush his vehicle and subsequently went after other vehicles in the Governor’s convoy, including the Governor’s official car, before they were brought to a halt by the security team attached to the Governor.

Reacting to the incident, Governor Amosun said, “this is lawlessness and the height of impunity.”

He added that, “if this could happen to a governor within his territory, you can imagine what they would do to our citizens who are simply going about their legitimate business.”

I don't understand. This is a simple altercation between 2 of a kind, judging that one drove more reckless than the other for me is simply hypocrisy. We all know how governors and their entourage as well as every privilege government number vehicles drive!!! Next headline please.......

To overtake governors convoy could be suspecting, the CBN van shouldn't have overtaken his convoy. Anyway both parties should settle.
