   Three journalists covering the Edo Government House lost their lives on Saturday afternoon when a lorry crashed into Gov. Adams Oshiomhole’s convoy.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor and his entourage were heading to Auchi from Afuze in Owan East Local Government Area of Edo to officially flag-off his return bid campaign.

The incident occurred few metres to Auchi town between Ikharo and Auchi axis of the Auchi/Sabongidda-Ora road.

The driver of the lorry was said to have lost control after  a break failure while descending the Auchi hill along the route.

The lorry narrowly avoided hitting the vehicle conveying the governor and rammed into the press crew bus and one of the escort vehicles attached to the governor.

Two of the three dead journalists were from the same media house (ITV) while the third was a cameraman from AIT.

They were among the six other occupants in the press crew bus when the accident occurred.

The other surviving journalists were said to have sustained various degree of injuries as well as the chief detail to the governor and some other aides.

As at the time of filing this report, the injured had been rushed to the Notredam hospital in Auchi.

Mr Olu Afolabi, Auchi Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), who confirmed the incident, also confirmed the death of the AIT cameraman.
