Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Thursday, narrowly escaped death when a convoy of bullion vans belonging to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) rammed into the governor’s convoy on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The incident, which occurred around Ibafo area while the governor was traveling to Lagos for an official assignment, witnessed the CBN vans damaging a vehicle in the governor’s convoy.
According to a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant on Media to the Governor, Adejuwon Soyinka, the CBN vans, driving dangerously, attempted to overtake the governor’s convoy without regards for the safety of other road users.

The statement noted: “On sensing danger, the Ogun State governor’s escort commander used a public address system mounted on his vehicle to warn the CBN convoy to desist from such reckless driving.
“Not only was the governor’s escort commander ignored, the drivers of the CBN vans went ahead to crush his vehicle and subsequently went after other vehicles in the governor’s convoy, including the governor’s official car, before they were brought to a halt by the security team attached to the governor,” Soyinka disclosed.
Reacting to the incident, Governor Amosun said, “This is lawlessness and the height of impunity.”
He added, “If this could happen to a governor within his territory, you can imagine what they would do to our citizens who are simply going about their legitimate business.”

Governor Amosun expressed disappointment with the reckless manner in which the CBN bullion vans often conduct themselves on the road and warned that such acts of impunity will not be tolerated within the borders of Ogun State.
“We will not allow such senseless and reckless behaviour in Ogun State,” Amosun warned.
This is not the first time the governor would have cause to personally caution reckless CBN convoy drivers in Ogun State.
On several occasions, the Ogun State governor had to personally turn back reckless CBN bullion van drivers who often drive against traffic with impunity on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Soyinka stressed.
