Muntaka Escapes Death –

The mangled car

THE
NATIONAL Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Asawase,
Mohammed Mubarick Muntaka, has miraculously escaped unhurt in a dangerous
crash.

The
road accident occurred at Kubease near Konongo when the MP’s vehicle suddenly
veered off the road into a nearby bush on Saturday
morning.

It
is alleged that a certain vehicle, without giving any signal to other drivers
and road users, suddenly made a sharp U-turn on the busy road in a frightening
manner around 9 am.

Sensing
danger, the MP’s driver directed the vehicle into a nearby bush in the Kumasi
direction. The bold action by the driver was said to have helped to prevent a
head-on collision.

People
in the area then rushed into the bush to rescue the occupants of the mangled
vehicle and were surprised to see the Asawase NDC MP among the passengers.

Reports
making rounds indicated that Ahmed Banda, the NDC MP for Banda, was also in the
vehicle. The two lawmakers were said to have surprisingly escaped unhurt.

Conflicting
reports making rounds indicated that the two MPs were from Accra to Sunyani for
a funeral service. Others also said they were on their way to Kumasi for an
event.

Even
though the MPs did not suffer any physical injuries, they were still rushed to
the hospital as precautionary measures, sources informed DAILY GUIDE.

According
to reports, the police in the area have towed away the damaged vehicle and
investigations into the near-gory accident are ongoing.
