Six people died, and many others were injured in a fatal motor accident involving a Mack Truck and four minibuses at IMSU Junction on Okigwe Road, Owerri, the capital of Imo State.

The incident was confirmed by Imo State police spokesperson Henry Okoye in a statement to DAILY POST. Preliminary investigations revealed that the driver of the Mack Truck (registration number KWL 857 YE), heading towards IMSU Junction from Orji along Okigwe Road, allegedly lost control of the vehicle, veered into the wrong lane, and ran over four minibuses and several pedestrians, causing multiple serious injuries.

Okoye said, “After receiving a report from a concerned citizen on 18/05/2024 at about 1745hrs about the accident at IMSU Junction, the Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma, quickly dispatched operatives from Orji Divisional Headquarters and the State Traffic Department to the scene.

“Upon arrival, the police, with help from public-spirited individuals, evacuated the victims to Federal Medical Center (FMC), Owerri, for medical attention. The medical practitioner on duty confirmed six deaths on arrival, while efforts began to save the injured victims.

“Photos and sketches of the accident scene were taken, and the wrecked vehicles were cleared to ease traffic flow. The deceased victims’ bodies were deposited at the FMC mortuary for preservation.

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has suggested he might support Peter Obi, his Labour Party counterpart from the last election, in 2027.

The former Vice President, currently in merger talks with stakeholders from various opposition political parties, indicated he would back Obi if the Labour Party nominates him for the next election.

According to The Sun, Atiku made this statement during an interview with BBC Hausa Service.

It was recently reported by DAILY POST that Obi and Atiku had a closed-door meeting, sparking rumors about a potential merger of opposition parties ahead of the 2027 general elections.

Atiku confirmed the efforts of opposition parties to align in order to challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2027 election, saying, “We can merge to achieve a common goal. So, it’s possible and nothing can stop it if we so wish to achieve that.”

Atiku added that if the new party decides it’s the turn of the South-East and chooses Peter Obi, he would not hesitate to support him.

“I have said repeatedly, and even before the 2023 general elections, that if the PDP decides to zone the presidential ticket to the South or South-East specifically, I won’t contest it.

“But I contested the 2023 presidential ticket because it was open to all members of the party,” Atiku explained.

Isaac Oyedepo, son of Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Living Faith Church, has admitted to having struggled with pornography at one point in his life.

Isaac revealed that he became involved with pornography during a trip to a European country.

Speaking on the podcast “Confession Box,” Isaac shared that he overcame this challenge with God’s help.

He explained: “My confessions are positive and meant to help others. I struggled with pornography before.

“I remember how it began; we traveled to a country, and I was alone in my room. I turned on the TV, and that’s how it started.

“But God helped me overcome it quickly. Many people still struggle with it, and I think if someone who had previously struggled with it had approached me and showed me how to break free, I would have overcome it sooner.

“Some topics are often avoided, but today, many pastors and church members still struggle with this issue.

“You might be anointed and performing signs and wonders, but that doesn’t mean you are living right.

“There’s an old saying that if it works, it means you’re standing right, but I found out that’s not always true. There were times I realized I wasn’t right, but grace and mercy found me.

“For the sake of someone genuine in the congregation, God can bypass you to reach that person; this is my confession.”
