Edo Reps Member Escapes Death In Auto Crash



Tragedy was averted on Thursday evening as a member of the House of Representatives, Marcus Onobun (Edo), escaped death in an accident on his way to Abuja.

Confirming this, Edo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tony Aziegbemi, said Onobun who was the immediate past Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, sustained injuries during the accident and had been hospitalised at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, where he is receiving treatment.

The party chairman said Onobun is in a stable condition as he spoke to him when he visited him in the hospital on Thursday.

“I can confirm to you that he had an accident on Wednesday and he had fractures in some parts of his body but he is responding and not in critical condition.

“When I visited him on Thursday, we spoke and he even told me how the incident happened. I wish him a quick recovery so that he can get back on his feet and contribute to the development of his people as he has always done,” Aziegbemi added.

Onobun, representing Esan West, Esan Central and Igueben Federal Constituency in the HoR, reportedly sustained multiple fractures when a vehicle he was travelling in fell into a ditch along Ekpoma-Abuja Highway.

The wreckage of the lawmaker’s vehicle, a dark-brown Mitsubishi SUV, showed a detached airbag system, a shattered windshield, and a disfigured roof.
