On Thursday evening, a convoy of the Lagos State deputy governor, Obafemi Hamzat, escaped what could have been a fatal accident after an army Brigadier jumped the red light and hit the convoy.

This incident occurred at the junction of Adebayo Kuku Boulevard by Alfred Rewane Road, Ikoyi, Lagos at about 6:05 p.m.

In spite of that, deputy governor Lagos immediately restored calm at the scene.

Eyewitness, Ejiro Clement, reported that Hamzat’s convoy was traveling from Marina to Osborne when the incident occurred.

She said, “I witnessed the incident while coming from Lekki Phase 1. Some traffic officials were doing their routine job at the junction when the deputy governor’s convoy stopped to obey the traffic light.

“Surprisingly, the convoy of a Brigadier was seen driving recklessly and did not obey the traffic light.

“Funny enough, they blocked the deputy governor’s convoy, hit one of his sparrows and damaged it in the process.

“The sparrow rider would have been knocked down save for divine intervention. This led to an altercation and a scene was created.

“The Brigadier’s convoy was ready for a show down, but the deputy governor, being a law- abiding citizen, quickly applied wisdom.

“He sued for peace and appealed to his team to leave the scene.”
