One week after the chopper carrying Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo crash-landed in Kabba, Kogi state, Amina Bello, wife of Yahaya Bello, the governor of the state, has been involved in a car accident in the area.
Governor Bello’s chief press secretary, Onogwu Muhammed, made this known in a statement.
The governor’s CPS said the accident happened around Oshokoshoko area of Kabba while the governor’s wife and some aides were on their way to Isanlu for an All Progressives Congress (APC) woman rally.
Muhammed said the aides with the governor’s wife were Kenechi Ajayi, senior special assistant on women and children to the governor; Ejura Edward, senior special assistant to the wife of the governor on women affairs; and Adesoro Olamide.
The chief press secretary who described the accident as “minor” said they all came out unhurt.
“In appreciation to God Almighty for his faithfulness to the New Direction family, the Kogi state government wishes to announce that three aides to the governor and his wife survived an accident this morning,” he said.
“The government appreciate God once again, that all persons are in perfect condition.
“The governor’s wife’s door-door campaign train continues with their rally to the western senatorial district after a successful two days outing in Kogi east,” he added.
