Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday

alighted from his vehicle to assist in the rescue of an

accident victim.

The victim, Miss Anukam Angela, who was driving alone in

a wine Toyota Corolla with number plate EKY 415 CG, at

about 8.15am, lost control and rammed into the median of

the road along Osborne Road, Ikoyi, before the vehicle


Ambode, who was heading to the office through the

direction before the incident occurred, ordered his convoy to

stop at the scene so as to enable him to assess the

situation as well as help rescue the passengers.

The governor instructed the ambulance attached to his

convoy to convey the victim, who was in a state of shock,

and could barely move or talk, to the Lagos Island General

Hospital for treatment.

Angela’s sister, Amaka, who was contacted shortly after the

crash, said she was treated for minor injuries free and

discharged on the order of the governor.

She said the ambulance also conveyed her sister back to

her residence at 3, Efosa Ehiedu Close, off Modupe Thomas

Estate, Ajah, while the Lagos State Traffic Management

roadside to prevent traffic gridlock.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna,

said, “What the governor has done is typical of him. It is

indeed a demonstration of his concern to the well-being of

every resident and Miss Angela is not an exception.

“He has also, with this act, shown his commitment to an all

inclusive approach in protecting the lives and property of

citizens in the state.”
