The senator representing the Ondo South Senatorial District of Ondo State, Nicholas Tofowomo, escaped death on Friday as his vehicle was involved in a road accident on Ilesa-Akure Expressway in Igbara Oke, the headquarters of Ifedore Local Government Area of the state.

The State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Zadok Akintoye, who confirmed the incident to journalists on Saturday said, the senator and four others involved in the accident were returning to Akure, the state capital from Ibadan, Oyo State.

Akintoye, who appreciated the efforts of the medical team at the Trauma Centre in Ondo and a public ambulance for coming to the victims’ rescue, said the victims were recovering at the hospital.

He said, “Our party yet again commend the brilliance of our doctors and medical professionals for their efforts.”

The senator is now in good condition and responding to treatment in hospital, Mr Olumide Akunrinlola, the Senator’s media aide has said.

Akunrinlola, in a statement on Sunday in Okitipupa, said although the auto crash was serious but no life was lost in the accident which involved four occupants.

He said: “Although the accident is fatal but no life was lost and I can confirm to you that the senator and other occupants in the vehicle were responding to treatments.”
