Two promising ladies in Ondo State were crushed to death in a road mishap allegedly caused by a vehicle in the convoy of a South-western governor's wife.

A vehicle in the convoy of Mrs Betty-Anyanwu-Akeredolu, wife of  Ondo State governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, on Tuesday killed two female undergraduates of  Adeyemi College of Education (ACE), Ondo, along Akure-Ondo Road.

The convoy of the governor's wife was heading to Ore in Odigbo Local Government Area  for an empowerment programme when the accident occurred. The programme is the brainchild of the Forum of the Wives of the Ondo State Government Officials (FOWOSO) through the office of Mrs. Akeredolu.

It was learned that no fewer than three occupants of the Press Corps bus sustained serious injuries. A Government House source told this website that accident occurred when Mrs. Akeredolu's convoy was leaving her monthly empowerment programme in Ondo town.

The driver conveyed people, who were mostly journalists. The driver, later identified as Mr. Jimoh, veered off to hit the students," said the source.
