Kogi Speaker’s Convoy Involved Fatal Auto Crash
The convoy of the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mommoh Jimoh Lawal was involved in a fatal car crash on New Year Day along Okene-Lokoja Road. A police Constable, Akeem Lamidi, who was riding a Toyota truck alongside other policemen attached to the Speaker, died on the scene.
