The Federal Road Safety Corps said that the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, was not involved in any accident. He helped to rescue some accident victims on his way to the airport.
The Corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem, said this in a press statement on Monday in Abuja.
Kazeem said that the Vice President and his security aides were joined by other Nigerians to pull the victims who were involved in an accident.
He, however, commended Osinbajo on behalf of the Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi for rescuing the victims, saying that it was a call to all that road safety was everybody’s business.
He said that nobody had died during the crash, adding that one male was injured.
He also said that the Vice President had directed the victim’s treatment on his account.
According to him, the accident occurred at Zamani Junction involving a Toyota Corolla with vehicle registration number GWT842AA.
“One male was injured and no one died. The victim has been taken to air force base hospital Abuja, airport road for treatment by the Vice President convoy ambulance as it happened in his presence,” he said.
Kazeem warned against speeding while attributing the accident that occurred as a result of overspeeding by the driver.Follow us on social media
