Ogun Auto Crash : Chairmanship Aspirant, MKO, Campaign Crew Escaped Death


A Chairmanship aspirant for Abeokuta South Local Government, Hon. Muatapha Kodaolu  on Sunday night escaped death in a ghastly accident at Adatan  area of the state.


The near-fatal incident happened while the aspirant, who’s popular known as MKO in company of  others were erecting his campaign billboards in the area in preparation for the coming Local government election in the state.


Governor Dapo Abiodun had on  Thursday, 18th March, 2021, inaugurated the six members of the OGUN State Independent Electoral Commission to kick-start the Local Government election in the state.


Narrating the ordeal, Him. Muatapha disclosed that he and some of his campaign assistants were moving around Abeokuta metropolis to erect the billboards  when a truck coming from an unknown direction hit one of the campaign vehicles at Moore Junction an drove off the scene.


He disclosed that he was at Adatan, some Mile away from the scene of the incident where he was also carrying out same duty when he received a distress call from one of his guys at Moore Junction, informing him of the latest ugly development and advised him to be on look out as the truck would soon drive along the location he was.


After receiving the calls, Hon. Muatapha spotted the same truck on escape motion along Adatan. Upon spotting the truck, the Chairmanship aspirant jumped into his second car and drove after the reckless truck driver in order to stop him from escaping. 


His words “On Sunday night, I and my campaign guys were around Abeokuta placing my campaign billboards in places. As we got to Moore Junction, a truck came from nowhere and hit one of my campaign cars and ran away. At the time of the incident I was at Adatan performing the same duty when the driver of the campaign car that was hit called and informed me that a truck had just hit my car, advising to be on the look out as the truck was coming towards my direction. 



He added “On hearing this, we stopped on the road trying to stop the truck. The truck almost rammed into us, ready to kill anybody when it got to our location so we ran away from the spot. We promptly ran after him in our second car to Ake. Around 1:30 am, we reported at Oke-Itoku Police station. Despite complaining bitterly to the police, they turned deaf hear, pretending they didn’t hear us.



“While still at the station, we spotted this same man drove passed the police station so I quickly jumped inside the car again, pursuing him. I took a shorter route in order to catch up with him. I overtook the truck at Lafenwa. 



MKO said “When the drive spotted us parked in front of him, he took a reverse to escape again and while trying to so, he crushed the my other car parked behind, after that he hit other two cars before he finally hit a truck which prevented him from escaping. He was later apprehended at Lafenwa Police station.
