Oct 21, 2013 – President Goodluck Jonathan’s Convoy Rescues Accident Victims On Lokoja Abuja Express Road

The advance team of President Goodluck Jonathan’s entourage, returning from Ado-Ekiti on Sunday rendered emergency rescue services to accident victims on the Lokoja-Abuja highway.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the accident which occurred at Okpu village, few kilometres after Lokoja, involved two cars, carrying 11 people.

A Nissan Almera car with registration number AH 47 KAA going to Lokoja and a Honda Accord car (Baby Boy) with registration number BG945BWR en-route Abuja, were involved in the accident.

The two vehicles had a head-on collision with serious impact, causing varying degrees of injury to the occupants of the vehicles.

NAN reports that the accident occurred few minutes before the presidential motorcade came to the scene.

The security team in the convoy swung into action by rescuing trapped victims in the two cars.

The front door of the passenger seat of the Nissan car was axed before a middle aged woman, who was trapped inside, could be rescued.

The medical team, led by Dr Aliyu Usman of the State House Clinic, rendered emergency medical treatment to the victims, aided by two nurses.

NAN reports that a team of Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), led by one Mohammed Haruna, came to the scene of the accident about 30 minutes into the rescue operation.

The victims were taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja in an FRSC rescue van for further medical attention.

An eye witness, Aliyu Sadiq, said that the accident was caused by over-speeding, dangerous driving and the poor state of the road.

Sadiq appealed to the Federal Government to expedite action on completing the dualisation of the Lokoja-Abuja highway.

The eye witness, who is a commercial bus driver, said he plied the road on daily basis, adding that “there is a hardly a day that an accident is not recorded on the road.” (NAN)

    • Mr President and his entourage should be commended. Even though the road should have been completed by now. The rude guy calling the president a dummy should remember that the President is neither the contractor or the Minister of Works.in the history of Nigeria, no President or Governors entourage has ever done that.video to the President
