It was a narrow escape for Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State yesterday as he got out unhurt after a truck crushed two vehicles in his convoy on Saturday.
According to a witness, the incident happened shortly after the governor and some of his commissioners entered a black Mercedes bus at the end of a wedding at Agga Mosque in Dougirei highbrow area of Yola, the state capital.
A truck rolling down the steep road crushed two vehicles in his convoy, leaving two policemen identified as Inspector Madu and Sergeant Isa injured.
A resident, Muhammad Dougirei, said the tipper suddenly ran toward the governor’s convoy at a speed so high, suggesting that the driver had lost control.
He said security operatives controlling traffic flow at the venue scampered in different directions.
