The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, had a close shave with death last Wednesday as a vehicle in his convoy collided with a fuel-laden tanker on Osogbo-Iwo Road.
Oba Akanbi was said to have escaped unhurt. However, his assistant driver and the tanker driver were not that lucky. They were said to have sustained injuries, and one of the cars in the monarch’s convoy seriously damaged.
Reports say the accident caused traffic logjam for several hours following the spillage of the content inside the tanker on the road.
