The convoy of the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mommoh Jimoh Lawal was involved in a fatal car crash on New Year Day along Okene-Lokoja road, with a police corporal losing his life.
This happened just three days after Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada was involved in a fatal accident.
The accident took place when the speaker was returning from Christmas celebration.
Report says a heavy-duty vehicle left its lane and crashed into the convoy with Lawal narrowly escaping being killed.
The Police corporal, Lamidi Akeem from Erinle in Oyun Local Government Area of Kwara State, did not die immediately. He sustained injury in the accident which happened on Monday, but later died Wednesday morning in a private hospital in Lokoja.
