The statement read: “We have received numerous calls from concerned Nigerians regarding the accident which occurred yesterday near Karu Flyover in Nyanya area of the Federal Capital Territory.

“The governor’s convoy was on the way from Abuja to Makurdi after accompanying him to the airport for his trip to the United Kingdom (UK) when a golf car collided with one of the security vehicles. We thank God that no life was lost in the incident.

Ortom is expected to spend two weeks both in the United Kingdom and United States of America.

The events, according to Akase, will focus on peace-building, social justice, and sustainable development in Nigeria as well as other parts of the world.
