VP Osinbajo’s Convoy Involved In Fatal Accident, Police Escort Rider Crushed To Death By Truck 3

The convoy of Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo was involved in a fatal accident en route to Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Friday.

Osinbajo lost one of his police escort riders, Ali Gomina, who was crushed to death in the accident which involved a car and a truck.

The 45-year-old police inspector was escorting Osinbajo on an official trip to Lagos when the accident occurred.

A State House source who narrated how the accident happened, said that as the lead rider in the VP’s convoy, Gomina had gone ahead to block a U-turn to allow the vehicles in the convoy to drive through.

“While Gomina blocked the U-turn, a car from the other side rammed into his motorbike.

“The impact of the contact pushed Gomina and his motorcycle in the direction of a truck speeding towards the U-turn from the opposite direction.

“It was the truck that crushed him to death. It was a sad incident; a bad day indeed.”

A statement by the vice president’s spokesman, Mr Laolu Akande, said Osinbajo described Gomina as a diligent, hardworking and serious-minded officer who would be greatly missed.

“With grief in our hearts, we announce the death of one of the police escort riders on the Vice-President’s convoy, Inspector Ali Gomina, aged 45, who was involved in a road accident while on official duty today (Friday).

“The accident occurred on the road to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. The Vice-President, who is greatly saddened by this occurrence, has aborted the scheduled trip.

“The Vice-President described Gomina as a diligent, hard-working and serious-minded officer who will be greatly missed by the team.

“He is survived by his wife, children and relatives. May his soul rest in peace.”

Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had also reported how Yemi Osinbajo, and 11 others, survived a helicopter crash at Kabba Township Stadium, Kogi State.
