A truck from the opposite direction ran into his convoy, missed his official vehicle narrowly and smashed into the press bus killing three of the journalists in the convoy. Given that Oshiomhole, the candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in the election was locked in battle with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, it was not difficult for the governor and his top lieuten ...
