The Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, in a show of kindness halted his convoy to rescue and evacuate victims of an accident to the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan.
The governor, who personally escorted the male and female victims to the Accident and Emergency Ward of the hospital around 5 p.m. on Tuesday had just returned to Ibadan from Ado-Ekiti, where he had attended President Muhammadu Buhari re-election campaign rally.
Eye-witnesses at the scene of the accident claimed that a hit-and-run driver had hit the motorcycle conveying the victims from the rear around 4 p.m. thus knocking the rider and his female passenger down.
They were suspected to have sustained head injury and fractures.
Upon getting to the scene of the accident, Ajimobi ordered that the victims be taken in the hilux van in his convoy and headed to UCH.
On arrival at the Emergency Unit of the hospital, the governor frantically engaged the medical personnel on duty, ensuring that the victims were stabilized before departing the ward.
Before leaving, Ajimobi paid the bill of four other victims he met in the place and detailed one of his aides to follow up on the two victims he personally took to the hospital.
