Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, on Friday, stopped his convoy and personally coordinated the rescue of three accident victims along Akure-Ondo Road.
Amosun, who came across the accident scene, while returning from the swearing-in of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State in Akure, stopped his convoy and led efforts to recover the accident victims from the bush.

The accident involved a Volkswagen car with registration number, Ondo BDR-223XA, painted in the taxi colour of Ondo State and a MAN Diesel truck, which apparently ran the taxi off the road.
The three female victims of the accident appeared to have sustained injuries on the head and this prompted the governor to direct his security team to immediately take them to the General Hospital in Ondo town.
The victims were rejected at the public health facility because the workers were said to be on strike, after which Amosun directed that they should be taken to a private hospital in Ondo town, where they were admitted and treated.
