Gov. Amosun of Ogun State, who was on his back from the swearing in ceremony of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Akure, stopped his convoy to save accident victims.
The accident victims who sustained injuries on their head, which came as a result of the
collision between a volkswagen car with registration number; Ondo BDR-223XA, painted in the taxi colour of Ondo State and a MAN Diesel truck along Akure-Ondo Road, were first taken to General Hospital in Ondo town, where they were rejected because the workers were on strike, before being taken to a private hospital were they are currently being treated.
Here’s the official press statement and photos;
“Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Friday, stopped to personally coordinate the rescue of three accident victims along the ever busy, Akure-Ondo Road in Ondo State.
Governor Amosun who came across the accident scene while returning from the swearing in ceremony of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Akure, stopped his convoy and personally led efforts to retrieve the accident victims from the bush.
The accident involved a Volkswagen car with registration number, Ondo BDR-223XA, painted in the taxi colour of Ondo State and a MAN Diesel truck, which apparently ran the taxi off the road.
The three female victims of the accident appeared to have sustained injuries on the head and this prompted the Ogun State governor to direct his security team to immediately take them to the General Hospital in Ondo town.
Although the accident victims were rejected at the public health facility because the workers were said to be on strike, Governor Amosun then directed that they should be taken to a private hospital in Ondo town where they were admitted and treated.”
