Former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole cheated death on Tuesday, when a trailer crashed into the party’s campaign convoy at Benin Bye-Pass.
Oshionmhole was indeed lucky, but same could not be said for two policemen in the convoy who died in the accident at Oluku Junction.
It was not clear whether the APC candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was also embedded in the convoy.
The accident was being seen by some members of Oshiomhole’s party as a set-up by the political opponents, while some said it was just a normal accident.
The gravity of the accident and the fatalities involved led the party to suspend further campaign, according to a statement issued after the accident.
The party said it suspended the campaign to grieve with families of the victims.
Edo election will now be held on 19 September.
