By Danlami Nmodu

After several failed attempts to reach him ,Newsdiaryonline.com  late Friday night received an email from Jacob Edi ,the special adviser on media and strategy to Kogi State Governor , Capt. Idris Wada .In the email, Edi gave the first official account of the “ghastly  accident”  involving the governor.

The statement   affirmed that Capt. Wada ‘is in stable condition” while also confirming the well known fact that  the governor’s “Aide de Camp ADC,Idris Mohammed, an Assistant Superintendent of Police died on the spot.”

According to  Edi, “The convoy of the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Capt. Idris Ichalla  Wada has been involved in a ghastly accident. The Governor survived the road mishap and is in stable condition. Sadly however, the governor’s Aide de Camp ADC,Idris Mohamed, an Assistant Superintendent of Police died on the spot.”

He added that “The accident occurred Friday afternoon at Emi Woro Village , about 12 kilometres into the state capital ,in between Prime Polytechnic and Salem University, in Ajaokuta Local Government. The convoy was returning from an annual  Igala Education Summit which the Governor declared opened at the state university in Anyigba.”


Apparently determined to avert any constitutional crisis arising from his accident, officials in the state are now opening up, giving  assurances that there is no cause for alarm.“The Governor of state Capt Idris Wada is safe, hale and hearty.He is also in good spirit and I spoke with him .He is in stable condition” an official told Newsdiaryonline.com very early this morning.

No report was given by officials of the nature of the injury  the governor governor  sustained in the crash. Newsdiaryonline .com , relying on unofficial sources had reported that he was “ in coma”  when he was rushed to a Lokoja hospital.We also reported on Friday night that he seemed to have been in a stable condition by the time he was being moved to Abuja by helicopter for additional medical treatment.One of his associates  also told us he had serious “leg injuries” and “he waved at his associates” as they  said goodbye  after  accompanying   him to the spot where he was flown to Abuja.
It is believed the governor was moved from a specialist hospital in Lokoja  to Obajana from where he was flown by helicopter to Abuja.
