Yomi Casual involved in an accident

Popular Nigerian fashion designer, Yomi Casual, survived a ghastly motor accident yesterday and is currently recuperating in a hospital in Lagos.

Yomi Casual, on his Instagram account, shared pictures of his wrecked car and another picture of him lying on a hospital bed. He captioned the picture, “ONI DURO MI ESE O!”

Efforts to reach him via the telephone proved abortive as no one answered his calls.

However, in a phone chat with The PUNCH, one of his closest friends, ace actor, IK Ogbonna, confirmed the news.

He said the accident happened when the fashion designer was heading back home from Banana Island.

“The accident happened last night when he was returning from Banana Island. A reckless driver drove into the road with speed without looking, so he ran into the person.

“He is okay now because I just left him in the hospital. He is just running x-rays to ensure that he does not have any internal injury. He is okay,” Ogbonna said.

Efforts to reach his elder brother, iconic comedian AY Makun, for further information, proved abortive as he did not pick his calls neither did he reply to a text message sent to his phone.

Meanwhile, AY took to his verified Instagram account to thank God for the life of his family.

With a photo, which had the inscription ‘Thank You Jesus’, the funnyman took the caption section and wrote, “That’s what I want to say on behalf of my family.”
