But for the matured handling of the impending crisis by deputy governor of Lagos State, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, hell would have been let loose when a serving Army Brigadier-General’s car rammed into the convoy of the politician.
It was gathered that the incident could have resulted in a fatal accident but for divine intervention.
The incident occurred at about 6:05p.m. at Adebayo Kuku Junction, by Alfred Rewane Road, at Ikoyi area of the state.

But the Lagos deputy governor immediately restored peace at the scene.
An eyewitness, identified as Ejiro Clement, stated that Hamzat’s convoy was heading for Osborne from Marina when the incident occurred.
According to her, “I witnessed the incident while coming from Lekki Phase 1. Some traffic officials were doing their routine job at the junction when the deputy governor’s convoy stopped to obey the traffic light.
“Surprisingly, the convoy of a Brigadier was seen driving recklessly and did not obey the traffic light.
“Funny enough, they blocked the deputy governor’s convoy, hit one of his sparrows and damaged it in the process.
“The sparrow rider would have been knocked down save for divine intervention. This led to an altercation and a scene was created.
