A deputy chief of staff at the presidency, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has been involved in an accident at Busunu, a suburb of West Gonja district in the Savannah Region.
YEN.com.gh has learned that he was returning to Damongo for the region’s farmer’s day celebrations when the accident occurred.
When he arrived at Busunu, one of the front tyres of his V8 vehicle burst, forcing the vehicle to veer into the bush.
Per a report by myjoyonline.com, none of the four occupants of the vehicle was hurt.
Jinapor was accompanied by his driver, his aide and a bodyguard.
Information available suggests that witnesses initially heard a crash as they conducted a data collection exercise in a neighbouring community.
Jinapor was reportedly quite shaken by the accident and he was attended to by those present till the police came to the scene and carried them away.
Reports say this is the second accident the deputy chief of staff has been involved in within two months, on the same Damongo-Busunu road.
In other news, the Electoral Commission’s (EC) district director for Bole in the Savanna region is dead.
The deceased, Alhassan Yussif Ayuba, lost his life in a road accident, which also claimed the life of his driver, Basiru Kojo.
The accident occurred in the late hours of Thursday, December 6, 2019.
The late Ayuba, who was also a former deputy director of communications at the EC, was reportedly transporting electoral materials from Tamale to Bole when the unfortunate incident occurred.
Per a report by citinewsroom.com, the district director for Tamale, Lucas Yirel, revealed that Ayuba’s remains have been deposited at the morgue of the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
Information gleaned from eyewitnesses show that a vehicle, which has already been involved in an accident at the same spot, is likely to have caused the accident.
