The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, escaped death by a whisker on
Tuesday after a mtsterious fire consumed his Mercedes-Benz G-Class on
the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Lagos State.

Management Authority and the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency

 A traffic official and witness said the driver of the G-Class, who
waited behind until the fire was put off, later went in to pack some
burnt N500 notes and other items in the car.

car in his convoy.
“On getting to the scene, we saw the driver who tried to cover his face
with a Fez cap. He watched helplessly as the fire raged on. We alerted
the state fire service and LASEMA. The LASEMA response unit had to take
one way to access the accident scene because the road was blocked
because of the inferno.
 “On arrival, they were able to douse the fire. The vehicle was
seriously burnt. The driver did not talk to anybody. We saw as he
started packing some of the burnt cash in the car. They were N500 notes.
He packed the money with some other items into a polythene bag. This
was in the presence of traffic officials and the police. We later
cleared the traffic as the carcass of the car was towed away by LASEMA.”
