Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied involvement in an accident along Airport road, Abuja, on his way to commiserate with the Ondo State government and families of victims of Sunday’s attack on St Francis Catholic Church, Owo.
Richard Akinola, Chairman, PYO Media Council, revealed in a statement on Monday.
“This is to notify the general public that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the leading APC presidential aspirant, was not involved in any accident this morning.
“Vice President Osinbajo was on his way to Owo, Ondo state over the dastardly terrorist attack of yesterday when his convoy met an accident scene on airport road, Abuja. He immediately stopped his convoy and asked his ambulance to take the victims to the hospital and report to him on the state of the accident victims. He immediately proceeded to board his flight to Akure.”
In a tweet posted to his verified Twitter handle on Monday, Laolu Akande, his spokesperson also denied the report.
“On his way to the airport this morning, VP came across a road traffic accident, stopped to lend assistance, & ensured victim was taken to the hospital with VP’s convoy ambulance. He then proceeded on his trip and is now in Ondo State heading to site of yesterday’s attack in Owo,” he wrote.
