Edo PDP chairman involved in auto crash, two injured

Two persons sustained varying degrees of injuries on Tuesday in an auto crash involving the convoy of the Edo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Dan Orbih, in Esan Central Local Government Area of the state.

It was, however, gathered that Orbih escaped unhurt.
It was learnt that the accident occurred at about 11am at Ewu hill sector of the Benin-Auchi expressway‎, when an articulated vehicle coming down the hill, from the Benin end of the highway, ran into the convoy from the rear.
‎The impact of the collision was said to have pushed the convoy of cars off the road and into the ravine.
‎The driver of the articulated truck, as well as two passengers in another vehicle, who sustained various degrees of injuries, were reportedly rushed to the Irrua Specialist Hospital for medical attention and evaluation.
Confirming the incident, the state Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Nehikhare, said the party chairman and his fellow travellers escaped by crawling out of the ravine.
He said the PDP family in Edo State was thankful to God that no lives were lost.
‎”We, however, pray for speedy recovery for them (injured persons). We also use this opportunity to thank all our members, supporters and well-wishers for their calls and concerns so far,” Nehikhare said in a statement.
