Jonathan’s police outrider crashes to death in Abuja

Former President Goodluck Jonathan

One of the best police outriders in President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy, Sirajo Alkali, has died in a crash along the Abuja airport road.

The incident happened on Saturday when Mr. Jonathan was returning to Abuja after a brief visit to Adamawa State, a source told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Alkali, a 32 year-old Police Corporal from Edo State, was said to have been one of the most gifted riders attached to the office of the president.

A presidency source who asked not to be quoted because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, said Mr. Alkali and other members of the presidential convoy had departed the Aso Villa on the fateful day to receive Mr. Jonathan.

“He was one of the best outriders in the convoy and had a very good knowledge of the power bike,” the source said.
“Corporal Alkali would always bring rhythm and style to the presidential convoy through his expert manoeuvrings, sharp but careful bending and calculated movements.

“But that day, he was just at his best when he suddenly ran into one of the concrete partition used by the company handling construction work on the Airport Road.”

According to the source, the outrider was initially at the rear of the presidential convoy but later moved ahead as the motorcade approached the military checkpoint by the Kuje bridge.

But just as he manoeuvred the sharp bend towards where the eight-lane approach is partitioned, Mr. Alkali lost control of the revving BMW power bike and crashed into the concrete partition.

“It was very pathetic and Mr. President called for the convoy to stop and personally came down to ensure that Alkali was immediately evacuated to the hospital but he died almost immediately,” the source said.

The remains of the police officer were moved to the National Hospital, according to the source.

PREMIUM TIMES also learnt that Mr. Jonathan and his wife, Patience, had invited the wife and close relations of the deceased to the Villa for a meeting.

The deceased officer was buried on Wednesday in his hometown, Igbanke, Orhinmwon Local Government Area of Edo State.

He was survived by four children.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Federal Capital Territory Police command, Anjuguri Manzah, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, confirmed the death of the outrider to PREMIUM TIMES.

  • amazing2012

    Sacrificed ! Government of death and for death !!

    • Cali

      Thnx for showing yur bigotry mallam. When some of you shout GEJ must go, some of us are not fooled. Yes, GEJ’S guvrnmnt is corrupt, but most of you so called opposition are in it because of ethnic and religious sentiments. Aboki ‘2012’, you are one of these bigots!
      DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT YOU WROTE WHEN THE APC GUBER ASPIRANT OF KOGI STATE LOST HIS LIFE?? WHY DID YOU NOT SAY HE WAS SACRIFICED BY APC OR BUHARI? DO YOU MAKE THIS COMMENT NOW BECAUSE THIS GUY WAS WORKING DIRECTLY UNDER THE PRESIDENT AND A SOUTHERNER OR WHAT??
      Some of us are not fooled mallam. You still show your deep rooted sentiments in the time of grief of another. SHAME!

      • amazing2012

        On the death of the officer, he might died due to distraction because of poverty, resulted from negligence.
        Nevertheless why should deaths reached a highest magnitude in administration ?
        On sentiment, let me inform that I am not Malam and as a matter of nature I will not be since “I am made ready and cannot be re-created” especially to suit your poor non facts argument. It’s you that should be charge on ethnicity for pointing at others who never choose to be made Malams.
        I support progress and development even if it will come from you or anybody else. I don’t believe in religiousity or ethnicity but facts in regards to developments, peace, and progress.
        This government is full with corruption, deaths, division, criminals in offices, shame abroad and uncontrol officials and situations by the head.
        How can I support failure ? Because it come from my tribal man or member of my faith. Is Jonathan not a shame to Ijaws ? Is he the best they can offer ? Is Jonathan representing Christ ? Is christ corrupt ? Does he believe in mismanagement and deaths ? Jonathan is not Jesus and will never be ! They are two different entities ! You are deceived ! I support development !! Let it come from a pagan or any tribe !!

        • Cali

          Mallam, please do humanity a favour and join one of GEJ’S almajiri skools.
          I honestly CANT fathom what u wer rambling about!
          ALL I ASKED WAS WHY YOU DIDNT SEE THE NEED TO SYMPATHISE WITH THE BEREAVD’S FAMILY LIKE YOU DID FOR THE APC MAN!
          NOT THIS ‘DOGON TURENCI’!!
          *pls if u wish to reply, do so in Hausa…

        • Tanimu

          No one mentioned ijaw. No one mentioned christ.
          Are you guilty as ‘accused’??
          You say Jonathan is a shame to ijaws. Was Abacha not a shame to the north??
          Yet your Hero said Abacha never stole a dime!
          Why have you not commented angrily over that statement by your hero??
          Hypocrite!

          • amazing2012

            Abacha and others who loot the treasury are disgrace and shame to there tribe, region end religion. Please read my previous comments, before you confirm ignorance!

        • Segun

          Simple question of why you were sad over the death of an APC member but felt the tragic death of a fellow citizen should be an occasion to talk about sacrifice.
          Haba aboki.

      • amazing2012

        Is the police man a member of PDP ? My concern is the condition that lead to his death ! Poverty that made him not to concentrate, thinking of food, school fees and other minor family needs. Shamed unto your brother for failure to take care of his own.
        Our finding Indicate poverty as Main cause of his lack of attention which result to his death !! Shamed !!!

  • hummm

    Overzealous speeding .Has anyone seen how these ppl speed , totally scary?. Nevertheless, rip and may God be with the family.

  • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

    “Mr. President called for the convoy to stop and personally came down to ensure that Alkali was immediately evacuated to the hospital…”

    Commendable, Mr. President.

    But the circle can only be completed by an enquiry to ascertain if the concrete culverts were meant to be where they were and if they were not; whoever left them there or caused them to be, should be prosecuted for manslaughter under health and safety legislation.

    • Godfrey Etokebe

      I TOLD YOU!! You are now 51% ……… GOING! GOING!!!

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        lol

        If I criticise APC members, would that make me 100%?

        This one is 100% APC, bruv.

    • Remi

      May his soul rest in peace. But I thought the airport has been completed and in wonderful shape. What is a culvert still doing there on the road. This I must inform you is part of our transformation. Abi won ti fi bori ni?

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Be la’a bi ni.

    • taiwo

      sick yougman

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        With this comment of yours, don’t you think it’s time for your meds?

    • Tanko

      Not even a word of consolation for the family.
      Remember yur comment on the death of the APC governorship candidate for kogi state. You wrote a string of words in Arabic. Can u please translate it for us? I bet it was very relevant for the situation. So, why don’t you think you shld do same here?? What are your considerations in determining who deserves your sympathy and doesn’t??
      Are you also one of the bigots hiding under ‘opposition’?
      Mr kay, Yeye dey smell for yur side.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Tanko, what I wrote simply meant that “from God we come, unto him we return”.

        BTW, if your snide reference to me writing in Arabic is why you insinuated religious bigotry to my person, you cannot be further off the target. I am not a Muslim and not being one does not mean I cannot appreciate a Muslim life and person as well as I can appreciate a Christian or person without a faith.

        The deceased rider is by no means irrelevant in my opinion. That I did not mention a word about him was an oversight, occasioned by how moved I was at the action of GEJ at the scene.

        But truth be said, it did cross my mind that the rider was careless and could have “died wrongfully” when I read the account of how the accident transpired.

        Nevertheless, I felt someone should be held accountable for his death, but not Mr. President.

        To the family of the deceased rider, I hereby offer my sincere condolences. That I did not offer such in my first response was purely an oversight. He did die in service of the nation.

        • Tanko

          No no no..your ‘writing in Arabic’ was NOT why I ‘insinuated’ bigotry. What I found curious ws why you didn’t see the need to show any form of sympathy. I also feel the fellow might have been careless with those stunts(though the account didn’t say he did any that time), but It would take a heart ruled by deep primordial sentiments to gush forth on causes of accident without even a line of condolence for such a tragic event.
          Your last line that your not offering any condolence was an ‘oversight’ is quite wierd..doesnt really fly bro..

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Tanko, you are simply being pedantic.

            What “gushing” did you read to ascribe “primordial sentiments” to my comment?

            I do not gush over GEJ, and God forbid that I do.

            By the way, what line of condolence have you written on the subject, save the unhealthy fixation on my person?

            I do not want to soil the passing of this person and would not be tempted by your asinine insinuations to the contrary.

            Be gone from me, ye Devil.

    May the soul of the young man rest in peace,shit happens so unfortunate

  • Nubianlady

    RIP Mr. Alkali.
    The president cannot be the cause of his death! He has been riding on that same road for long and seen as the best! Any driver/rider no matter how good knows that accident can happen to anybody no matter your driving experience.

  • Acosta

    May his soul rest in peace. Amen

  • Wähala

    He was returning from Adamawa State where he went to visit the Turaki, Alhaji Atiku, in the middle of the night. Their meeting started at 11.45pm and lasted for hours after which $Dumbo returned empty-handed from trying to recruit Atiku into his interim government scam, and to re-defect to PDP and deflate the APC momentum going into the elections. This tragedy is nothing but another collateral damage from the callous actions of an irresponsible President… and coming after the mass roasting of innocent women who went to visit his drum-wife, Lady Sheppopatience. Nigerians are dying like flies because of this evil & corrupt couple and there must be an end to Badluck. This is truly pathetic, my heart goes out to the fine officer’s family. And… May His Sou Rest in Peace!

  • TRUTH MASTER

    Needless death. Had the elections not been postponed, Alkali might still be alive today. The President might not have had any cause to visit Adamawa to recruit Atiku to his thinning fold. My condolences!

  • Umar Dendi

    Please do not make this about politics!

    Stomach-churning at the level of callousness of some commentaries here; and the linking of the death to Jonathan! Have some Nigerians really descended to this kind of thinking? May the soul of this spectacular Nigerian rest in perfect peace.

    Is a sign for what is yet to come for President Jonathan come 28th march 2015. A fatal crash at the polls.

  • August January

    May God rest his soul.
    I have said it severally. Take it or leave it, Jonathan is a desperate, bloodsucking demon. He has a blood covenant in the spirit realm because of his inordinate desire for power. Imagine! He was coming from his secret meeting with Atiku in the middle of the night, even when the man was already sleeping, just to retain power, when the accident occurred. Who knows the different shrines and cult groups he has been going to at night just to remain in Aso rock. I have never seen this kind of desperation in the democratic Nigeria. The man’s blood is on Jonathan’s head

  • Enemona

    May his soul rest in peace. May God be with his family, especially the young ones he leaves behind. What a tragic end. Really sorry for his death.

  • favourtalk

    RIP,had it been he made all the roads motorable and rail system working well, maybe such would have been averted. Anyway, change is here

    • Psi Ciroma

      RIP had previous governments doen their work in fixing roads Jonathan would not have to clean up their mess!

    Duncee, where is thy certificate? …We cannot glorify illiteracy or less than mediocre IQ on the banal basis of ethnicity, religion or the mumuistic’ born to rule futile ideology. Show they certificate?…If a Pry School cert holder can become a presidential aspirant by obtaining clearace from INEC on the basis of “irrefutable presumption” that he completed a secondary education, then one needs no seer to warn us that INEC has been infiltrated by Boko haram members. Oh yes!…Boko haram members…and I am sure you all know what I mean.

    • UYI111

      That is a fact !

  • Mukhtar Ibekwe

    Just as Boko haram are being chased out, he directed his brothers in Benue to go on a killing spree and some online news medium did not see. Over 100 including women & children were killed in their sleep

    and the children posting useless comments here did not post any comments when Duncee’s kinsmen killed in Benue, they saw no links…but when one accident occurs with President Jonathan’s security, it is then they all develop dysentery of the mouth.
