Senator Akpabio flown abroad for medical treatment

Senator Godswill Akpabio, who was involved in an auto-accident on Monday, has been flown out of Nigeria to receive medical attention abroad.

Akpabio’s car ran into a convoy of some United State’s embassy officials while trying to beat the traffic light.

While the occupants of the vehicles in the convoy of the US embassy and Akpabio’s driver did not sustain any injury, the senator suffered some injuries in the chest region.

The former governor of Akwa Ibom state and five of his aides, reportedly left the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja aboard a regular private jet on Tuesday, September 1.

Punch reports that Akpabio and his team arrived at the General Aviation Terminal, local wing, of the airport around 12.40pm, and were taken to the aircraft by a tarmac bus.

An official of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, who witnessed Akpabio and his team travelling abroad, revealed that: “He (Akpabio) was at the GAT local wing of the airport and one of the tarmac buses was used to convey him to his aircraft. He left around 20 minutes to 1pm.

“The flight conveying him on the trip taxied to the international terminal from where it took off. The former governor travelled with his own private flight and had about five persons who accompanied him on the trip.

He looked physically okay, although some of the men with him said he might receive medical attention abroad due to the car crash he was involved in on Monday.”
