The convoy of Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, on Tuesday rammed into a clutch of motorists.

Three persons, who are indigenes of Ezza South Local Government Area, reportedly lost their lives in the incident.

According to reports, the victims were on Muhammadu Buhari’s international airport road when an advance team rammed into them.

It was gathered that the convoy had dropped Umahi at the airport located at Onueke, and was returning to town when the incident happened.

The accident occurred shortly after the commissioning of a flyover at Abaomege in Onicha local government area which was named after Prince Arthur Eze.

The flyover was commissioned by Prince Arthur Eze, together with the Governor Umahi.

It was gathered that the governor left for Abuja shortly after the commissioning ceremony.

Prince Arthur Eze and the state deputy governor, Eric Kelechi Igwe, however, stepped down at the accident scene and consoled with the families of the victims, directed that the victims be rushed to hospital, then zoomed off to Enugu State.

The motorcycle belonging to the victims and the Sienna involved were destroyed beyond repair, though their names and the registration number of the ill-fated vehicle is yet to be identified at the time of filing this report.
