Onu escapes death in bus crash, victims blame minister’s convoy


An accident involving a bus and the convoy of the Minister of Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, left 16 occupants of the bus seriously injured while the minister escaped without injuries.

The 16 people sustained serious injuries when the convoy of Onu, former governor of Abia State, allegedly rammed into a bus carrying passengers in Ebonyi State.

The incident occurred Wednesday, 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 reports, 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 seen wearing bandages. 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.

He noted that though no one died in the incident but that all the occupants of the bus sustained serious injuries with some in critical condition.
