A statement by Al-Makura's spokesperson said “For the avoidance of doubt and to set the records straight, on Thursday 10, September 2015 about 3pm when the convoy of His Excellency was approaching Nasarawa-Eggon Local Government Area, a vehicle was right in the middle of the road and in spite of several efforts by the police outrider and the pilot to slow the car down, the vehicle remained right in the centre of the road, refusing to make way for the convoy which nearly caused an accident."

 

Adding that “As she (Lois) came out, she began to rain abuses on the police, boasting that she is a lawyer and the daughter of a police commissioner and has the right to drive the way she wants."

“Noticing her unruly behaviour, the governor directed the escort commander to invite the police from the nearest police station to handle the matter to avoid further congestion and obstruction of traffic on the highway while the convoy continued on its journey to Abuja,” the statement said.
