Former Akwa Ibom State governor and present minority leader in the Nigerian Senate, Godswill Akpabio, was involved in a car accident in Abuja.
Senator Godswill Akpabio, former Governor of Akwa Ibom State survived a car accident on Monday morning after his car got involved in an accident along the Airport Road in Abuja.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, the accident occurred near the Bolingo Junction close to the Ship House, Abuja.
An eyewitness claimed that the car of Godswill AKpabio was moving in a convoy of vehicles towards the City Gate when his vehicle ran into another car.
My wife and I were coming from the NNPC Mega Station and we stopped at the traffic light by Bolingo Hotel Junction. When the green light showed and we made to move, there was this siren blaring Mercedes Benz jeep that came from the town and almost crashed onto my car.
I don’t know how we dodged but another that was behind the jeep hit the car behind me and tumbled on its side.
I and my wife rushed out of our vehicle and helped the driver bring out his boss. When we brought him out, we found that it was former governor Godswill Akpabio.
At the time we brought him out, the siren was still blaring. We put him in the other vehicle and he was rushed to the National Hospital.
The eyewitness claimed that the former governor of Akwa Ibom State was traumatized by the accident and was rushed to the hospital. Efforts to speak with the doctors proved abortive. However, Mr. David, Akpabio’s driver said his boss was in stable condition but declined to say how the accident happened.
