This is the Lorry which drove with high speed and rammed into the convoy of First Lady Fatima Maada Bio after the driver said his brakes failed him whilst he was driving the lorry at top speed on the Makeni Highway. The First Lady is safe but naturally she is very, very concerned over her security staff who are affected.
The lost control lorry narrowly missed the actual official vehicle in which First Lady Fatima Maada Bio was actually seated as she returned to Freetown from Kono via Makeni Highway.
After first missing her official vehicle, the lorry driver continued, with high speed, to hit the back of one of the security vehicles before continuing to actually ride over a third security vehicle; in the process seriously injuring several close protection security officials.
Because of the height of the lorry, the lorry driver did not sustain serious injuries. However, it practically rolled on top of the convoy vehicle, seriously injuring and mauling those who were in it.
The Police are investigating the accident including the alleged brakes failure of the lorry. The injured security personnel have been evacuated to Freetown for further medical attention.
I was not part of the convoy as I was a distance behind but I swiftly went to the hospital at Lunsar to assist and after helping to supervise the evacuation of the victims to Freetown, I can confirm that all the injured are now responding to treatment. Please keep them in your prayers.
May God continue to protect our very hard-working First Lady. Amen.
