Man involved in ghastly accident hours after joining crowd to chase Lamidi Apapa out of court
A Nigerian man has survived a ghastly auto crash that occurred along Lafia expressway in Nasarawa state, hours after he left Abuja.
He claimed to have been among the mob that booed and chased the Factional Chairman of the Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa out of the premises of the Court of Appeal.
The accident victim known as @realYangaB on Twitter gave thanks to God for sparing his life as he came out unhurt.
He shared a series of photos of his damaged car, which veered off the road, and noted that it is beyond repairs.
He wrote; “I cheated death today. I left Abuja after making sure Apapa Lamidi collect wotowoto at the court. On my way to Lafia-Nasarawa State I had an accident.
My car is just beyond repair. I thank God I came out alive.”

CorrectNG reported on Wednesday that there was mild drama and confusion at the Presidential Election Petition Court on Wednesday in Abuja when two factions, clashed during the resumption of hearing.
The court refused to recognize the Julius Abure faction and Lamidi Apapa faction who both laid claims to the national leadership of the Labour Party (LP).
Drama started after LP Women Leader, Mrs Dudu Maluga introduced herself as representative of the party in the petition, in the presence of the presidential candidate Peter Obi.
Almost immediately, Lamidi Apapa who was in court with his group, stood up and announced himself as the party’s acting national chairman.
The two factions of the party had engaged themselves for recognition and to be recorded as the official representatives of the party in the pre-hearing of Obi’s petition.
Following the confusion that ensued, the Chairman of the Court, Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, ruled against the two factions that the court would not recognize or record their respective presence as representatives of the party.
