Former President Goodluck Jonathan

Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan was reportedly involved in auto crash in Abuja

Two persons have been confirmed dead in the reported fatal auto crash in Abuja.

Jonathan was returning from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja on Wednesday when the accident happened.

Although the former president escaped death and is said to be now safe in his Abuja home, two of his aides died in the accident.

It is unclear if Mr Jonathan sustained any injuries from the auto crash as Choicereporters could not reach the former president’s spokesperson as of the time of filing this report.

The incident reportedly happened on Wednesday when the ECOWAS Special Envoy was on his way from the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport to his residence in Abuja.

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has reacted to reports of ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan’s involvement in an accident.

Atiku thanked God for sparing the life of Jonathan during the auto crash.

In a tweet, the Presidential aspirant wrote: “This story comes across with a rude shock. We thank God for sparing the life of President Goodluck Jonathan.

“But it is heart wrenching that he lost two of his aides to the auto accident. I console the immediate families of the deceased as well as President Jonathan.

“May the souls of the departed Rest In Peace.”
