On his journey to Abuja, Marcus Onobun, a member of the House of Representatives, narrowly avoided being killed in an accident.
The state Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, Tony Aziegbemi, who confirmed this to our correspondent on Friday, said Onobun who was the immediate past Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, sustained injuries during the accident and had been hospitalised at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, where he is receiving treatment.

According to Punchng, Aziegbemi said Onobun was not in a critical condition as he spoke to him when he visited him in the hospital on Thursday.

“I can confirm to you that he had an accident on Wednesday and he had fractures in some parts of his body but he is responding and not in critical condition.

“When I visited him on Thursday, we spoke and he even told me how the incident happened. I wish him a quick recovery so that he can get back on his feet and contribute to the development of his people as he has always done,” Aziegbemi added.

Onobun, representing Esan West, Esan Central and Igueben Federal Constituency in the HoR, reportedly sustained multiple fractures when a vehicle he was travelling in fell into a ditch along Ekpoma-Abuja Highway.

The wreckage of the lawmaker’s vehicle, a dark-brown Mitsubishi SUV, showed a detached airbag system, a shattered windshield, and a disfigured roof.
