It was sheer luck that saved many from loosing their lives today in Abuja as the truck conveying some of those who took part in the protests against the Judiciary crashed.
Leaders of the People’s Democratic Party had led some protesters against what they termed injustices being created by the nation’s judiciary especially after the verdict of the Supreme Court which gave victory to Hope Uzodima candidate of the All Progressive Congress last Friday.
The affected PDP protesters were in some vehicles, but suddenly at the Transcorp Hilton junction, one of the vehicles rammed into a truck also conveying some other PDP protesters.
However, there were no injuries and no death recorded.
The Supreme Court had on January 14 nullified the victory of Chief Emeka Ihedioha, who is the PDP Imo State 2019 governorship candidate.
The apex court had held that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Hope Uzodinma, is the duly elected governor of the state and ordered that he should be sworn in as the governor of the state.
Some of the PDP leaders at the protest included the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus; the 2019 Vice-President candidate, Peter Obi; and the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Also present were members of the PDP National Working Committee as well as the PDP Youth Leader, Ude Okoye.
