By Temitope Adedeji, Akure
It is never a thing of joy to the family and friends of Jimoh Adams, the motorcyclist that was killed by the convoy of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu in Owo, the home town of the governor on Sunday evening.
The 42-year old man was on his way from a popular Okedogbon area of the town before he was said to have been killed by the governor’s driver.
According to the family source, who said that the eyewitnesses at the scene claimed that Jimoh was just on his lane when the convoy suddenly blew the siren at a close range to where he was and as a result, the shock and the fear, made him collide with the parked vehicle on the road.
Usman, a family member of Jimoh said that everybody is aware that the drivers of Ondo State Governor convoy were always driving reckless, which we all know and we witness it almost on a daily basis mostly while driving on major roads on the cities.
He was bittered at the claims of the government over the death of the young man, stressing that they left everything for God to judge.
“We have no power nor money to challenge Mr governor but we left everything to God,” he said.
“Imagine, how would he just hit a parked vehicle if nothing had not happened. His wife and children were expecting him home that Sunday before he was sent on an errand of no return “.
However, the state commissioner for information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo has debunked the rumour that the man was never killed by the convoy.
According to him in a statement, made available to Western Post on Monday he said, the death should not be linked with the convoy but that Jimoh died as a result of over speeding while trying to make a way for the convoy.
