Convoy Of Kwara's First-Lady Killed Lagos Community Leader- Saharareporters. by Rep042: 4:30am On Nov 20, 2013
By SaharaReporters, New York

The killing of a female community leader by a trailer in Abule-Egba in Lagos on November 13 has been linked to the convoy of the First Lady of Kwara State, Omolewa Ahmed.
The community leader, Victoria Adeoye, 63, was killed when a tipper-trailer ploughed into bystanders as it tried to avoid a head-on collision with Mrs. Ahmed’s convoy, which was driving on the wrong side of the road.
Unconcerned, Mrs. Ahmed and her convoy of about seven cars abandoned the accident victims and sped on towards Abeokuta.  The Kwara First Lady was on her way from visiting popular Fuji musician, Kollington Ayinla, who was receiving treatment at Hamkad Hospital for an undisclosed ailment.
Eyewitnesses say the accident occurred when the fourth vehicle in the convoy was exiting the small road leading to the hospital.  Mrs. Adeoye and a roadside ice cream seller were killed.
In order to cover up the cause of the accident, authorities at Hamkad Hospital gagged their workers from disclosing their VIP guest, and swiftly moved Alhaji Ayinla to another hospital.
Mrs. Adeola’s son, Olusegun Adeoye, an Abuja-based  medical doctor, told SaharaReporters that Hamkad has refused to disclose the killers of his mother.  
SaharaReporters however learnt from people in the area that although the plate numbers of the vehicles were covered, policemen in Mrs. Ahmed’s convoy had freely chatted with people in the area and disclosed they were from Kwara State.
SaharaReporters approached Dr. Femi Akorede, a spokesperson to the Kwara State governor, who admitted that the convoy at the hospital was that of the Kwara State First lady. However, he vehemently denied that the convoy caused the tragic accident, claiming instead that the brakes of the tipper-trailer failed and endangered the First Lady’s convoy.
  It is unclear how he obtained those details since he was not on Mrs. Ahmed’s detail.
Asked why the First Lady’s convoy did not at least stop to assist the victims of the accident they witnessed even on compassionate grounds, he said she was only made aware of it after she returned to Ilorin, the state capital.
Eyewitnesses however, contradicted Akorede’s account, insisting that the accident happened as the convoy harassed motorists on the highway, causing the trailer to careen off the highway and then slam into several people, including Mrs. Adeoye who was at the bus stop on her way to Oshodi.
The Lagos State police also tried to cover up the cause of the accident by trying to use force to move the vehicles, until a mob prevented them from doing so.
The accident occurred within 24 hours after another a similarly reckless convoy of the Kogi State Governor killed Professor Festus Iyayi, a former Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) President, on his way to an ASUU conference in Kano on November 12.

What is the value of all these useless first ladies? All they do is donate to one charity or another. What still baffles me is; where do they get money for charity? From the state purse I guess. The same state that is under-developed. Her husband was voted for and not her so why assign a convoy of over seven cars to her? How I hate to hear the word "firstlady".

The people covering up this act are as guilty as the murderers themselves. God bless saharareporters for revealing evil in our society. This must be properly investigated and justice served.

Convoys should be banned! I dont really see the need of parading multiple luxurious cars along our roads endandring the life of innocent civilians. To crown the wastes; those cars are driven empty with only the drivers inside blowing sirens and distracting other commuters!

My annoyance is, why didnt the truck driver ram the vehicle on the convoy instead of the poor masses? We would by this time be applauding him for job well done if he had rammed the truck on the convoy. Nonsense driver! Besides, all these useless 1st ladies or whatever they call themselves, what is thier responsibities in the society sef? On what account shld a convoy be attached to a 1st lady? It's high policy laws are put in place to retrack sensibility in our society. A president/governor's wife shld be in the kitchen cooking for our hushand and guests coming to the govt house but here, you have her moving around on convoy aimlessly using the state fund to fuel the vehicles plus other expenses incurred in the process of the journey when majority of the citizens are dying in abject poverty. Since she had used convoy to destroy souls, in convoy shall she and other reckless convoy users/drivers die - amen.

That's the prayer of the Nigerian masses!!!
