The accident occurred along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway as Makarfi and his entourage were on their way to Kaduna.

Reports suggest the vehicle conveying Makarfi  was involved in a multiple collision with other vehicles.

Makarfi and all other passengers in his vehicle, however, came out unhurt.

A statement by the spokesperson of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, said a vehicle rammed into Makarfi's convoy from behind.

Adeyeye said the PDP is thankful to the Almighty that no lives were lost.
