Former Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria Godswill Akpabio, was flown out of the country for medical treatment following at road traffic accident involving his car and a vehicle belonging to the American embassy in Abuja]
According to eye-witnesses, the driver of the governor’s car had ignored traffic lights and ploughed straight into the American Embassy’s vehicle.
Mr. Akpabio was travelling in a convoy of vehicles towards the City Gate when the accident occurred.
