Popular Nollywood actress in the Yoruba film category, Ms Ronke Ojo aka Ronke Oshodi Oke has survived a car crash that left her Honda SUV Element vehicle damaged beyond repairs.
According to her, the sad accident occurred on Monday, May 9, 2016, along Agege/Oshodi Road in Lagos while on her way to a film location.
She recounted her ordeal thus, â€œItâ€™s true I was involved in an accident along Agege/Oshodi express road on Monday, May 9, 2016, and itâ€™s an unforgettable experience. But I just have to give glory to God for keeping me alive.â€
Ojo recollected the event saying â€œI was coming from Computer Village, Ikeja, facing Oshodi. As I got to PWD bus stop, a naval officer was coming out of the Air Force Base in Ikeja, Lagos with a pilot in his front. The way the pilot came out was wrong, the driver was on high speed.
â€œI believe a responsible driver or motorist should understand that the road is narrow and very busy. So, he needed to have applied brake or drive slowly before coming out to the express road.â€
Ronke explained further stated, â€œThe man just pulled into the road, and coincidentally, two trucks carrying 40 feet containers were coming at my back.
â€œSo, I had to park because the pilot had come out already, and the lane was narrow. As I was parking, one of the trucks just hit my jeep from the back.
â€œThe thing became a kind of multiple accidents as two other vehicles were also affected, but itâ€™s only my car that was badly damaged. But the most important thing was that I was not injured. Although, I was a little unconscious, I later regained consciousness.â€
