Not fewer than 16 people yesterday, sustained serious injuries when the convoy of the Minister of Technology and former governor of Abia State, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu allegedly rammed into a bus carrying passengers in Ebonyi State.

The incident occurred along the military cantonment axis of the
Abakaliki/Afikpo highway. The bus was carrying passengers from Abakaliki
to Uburu, Ohaozara local government area of Ebonyi state while the
Minister’s convoy was heading to Abakaliki, the state capital.

According to the reports jeossyjs gathered, the Minister was in the convoy and did not sustain any injury while all the occupants of the bus numbering over 16 sustained serious injuries and are currently receiving treatment at Accident and Emergency unit of Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki 2(FETHA 2).

Two of the victims broke their legs while others sustained serious
head and leg injuries and were wearing bandages when our correspondent
visited. One of them, Lawrence Okoro who sustained eye and head
injuries, alleged that the Minister’s convoy left its lane to their own
lane, leading to head-on collision of the two vehicles.

occupants of the bus sustained serious injuries with some in critical
condition.
