SaharaReporters exclusively gathered the bus, assigned to the Ondo State Governor’s Office Press Corps, in Mrs. Anyanwu-Akeredolu’s convoy hit a separate vehicle in which the the two students were travelling into a canal.

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