In what could be best described as a show of concern, 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-coloured Toyota Corolla car with registration number EKY 415 CG, at about 8:15am, lost control and ram into the median of
the road along Osborne Road, Ikoyi before the vehicle somersaulted.

Worried by what could have befallen the occupants of the car, Governor 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 access the situation as well as help rescue the passengers.

The Governor immediately instructed the ambulance attached to his convoy to convey Miss Angela, who was in a state of shock, and could barely move or talk, to be taken to the Lagos Island General Hospital for treatment.

Angela’s sister, Amaka, who was contacted shortly after the incident, said she was treated for minor injuries and discharged free of charge 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 Authority (LASTMA) assisting in towing the vehicle away from the roadside to prevent traffic gridlock.

According to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna, “What the governor has done is typical of him. It is indeed a demonstration of his concern to the wellbeing 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”.
