Truck Runs Into Edo Gubernatorial Aspirant, Barr. Asue Ighodalo’s Car



A trailer hit the personal car of Barr. Asue Ighodalo’s vehicle on Saturday evening, barely three days after he declared his governorship ambition at the PDP Secretariat in Benin City.

In what seemed like a scene from an action movie, the trailer, without license plates, rammed into the back of Barr. Ighodalo’s bus on Sapele Road, causing significant damage and forcing it off the road. Instead of stopping, the trailer raced off into a side street. However, luck was not on the side of the getaway driver, as he ran over a motorcycle, damaging his trailer and rendering it inoperable.

Passers-by managed to apprehend the driver as he abandoned his vehicle and attempted to disappear into the surrounding cluster of back streets.

Fortunately, Barr. Ighodalo, who had attended the burial ceremony of the Commissioner for Digital Economy, Science and Technology, Ogbeide Ifaluyi-Isibor before the incident, escaped unhurt.

The police have detained the unlicensed trailer and the driver; and are investigating the circumstances behind the accident.
