The convoy of Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has reportedly crashed into a motorcycle, and killed three persons in the process.
The deceased are reportedly natives of Ezza South Local Government Area in the State.
The casualties were struck by an advance team while they were on the route leading to Muhammadu Buhari’s international airport, according to reports.
It was also gathered that they had dropped the State Governor at the airport located at Onueke, and while returning to town, the tragic incident occurred.

According to reports, the incident happened soon after the opening of a flyover named after Prince Arthur Eze at Abaomege in the local government area of Onicha.
Prince Arthur Eze, together with Governor Umahi, commissioned the flyover.
It was then learned that shortly after the commissioning ceremony, the governor left for Abuja.
However, Prince Arthur Eze and the State’s Deputy Governor, Eric Kelechi Igwe, left the accident scene and consoled the victims’ families before ordering that they be taken to the hospital and then sped off to Enugu State.
The victims’ motorcycle and the involved Sienna were irreparably damaged, albeit their names and the registration number of the unfortunate car were not yet known at the time this report was filed.
