Driver in custody for killing Abia poly graduate

A yet-to-be-identified truck driver is now in police custody for allegedly crushing an Abia State Polytechnic, Aba graduate, Miss Mary Ogechi, to death at the Aba-Owerri Road on Tuesday.

MAGIC FM reliably gathered that the deceased graduated from the polytechnic a few days and celebrated her graduation on social media for emerging the best accounting student in her department. She was said to have gone to her school on Tuesday to process her results so as to get ready for the National Youth Service Corps mobilisation when the accident occurred.

MAGIC FM also reported that, in response to the new graduate’s passing, students of the school staged a protest and blocked the expressway.

An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said the deceased suffered fractured legs and a dislocated hip after being pushed down by a commercial tricycle rider and was subsequently run over by a trailer with registration number XA-60 YEN.

“She was crossing the road when a reckless commercial tricycle driver hit her, which made her fall on the road. The truck driver who saw her suddenly tried to avoid her but couldn’t, instead rammed over her leg, leaving her in a pool of blood. The tricycle rider ran away, together with the truck driver who abandoned his vehicle to run into a nearby police station in the Aba North Local Government Area.

“People were scared of taking her away immediately. But a few others summoned the courage and rushed to the scene. They initially thought that she was dead, but when they felt some pulse, people who recognised her rushed her to the hospital for urgent medical attention. She later gave up the ghost.”

One of the deceased’s family members, Nelly Nazo, who mourned her passing in a Facebook post, claimed that the mother raised the deceased and her siblings alone and that it was a tragic event that she died in an accident.

She wrote, “Miss Ezekiel Mary Ogechi, it is unfortunate that your life was cut short by the terrible accident you had yesterday. I have not been myself since I got to know from your mum that it was you who was lying helpless in front of Abia poly yesterday. I pray that God will give your mum all that she will need,” she added.

Another relative, Vivian Onwumere, expressed her grief in a Facebook post, stating that the deceased was of high character adding that her death had left her devastated.

She wrote, “The news of the Abia poly accident got me speechless, not knowing it was my daughter. My tall glass is pretty, intelligent yet respectful, humble, and obedient. Seeing the video alone left me completely shattered. I am mute and reminiscing on all you told me years ago at the MIIT about what you would do when you got admission and after graduation. I kept asking and wondering why it must end this way after all the struggles, pains, and dedication. God knows better, keep resting, my beloved.”

Reacting to the tragedy, some Abia poly students protested their grievances, claiming they had informed the government to build a bump on the road as a safety measure against reckless drivers who had repeatedly run over staff and students at the school.

The students also threatened to set the trailer ablaze but a Rapid Response Squad intervened to calm the violence.

Some of the placards carried by the protesting students read, ‘No more trailers for daytime, ‘Abia students are not happy.”

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Chinaka Maureen, confirmed the incident, adding that the situation had been calmed down. She also explained that the car and its driver had been taken into custody.

She said, “The driver is in our custody and the vehicle has been recovered. We calmed the area, and an investigation is in progress. Although we are still in the preliminary stage of the investigation, as time goes on, we will communicate further developments on the story.”

Nigerian singer Portable has cried out in fear over his recent observation in America.

The singer, in a video captured online, revealed that American citizens are always carrying guns like phones in their pockets. According to him, those who have been coming to welcome him into the country and greet him have been coming with guns.

He expressed fear that he could end up being killed should he engage in an argument with any of them. However, he remains strong that nothing can happen to him.

Whatever that makes portable a Yoruba Guy and as well as a Nigerian mafia to be afraid of gun in the United States of America must be a top 10 don’t you think so because the Yoruba people will know are always known to be working with a body IP known as Odeshi(anti bullets).

But if I’m to suggest I will suggest that the president of the United States of America should look into how individuals abroad list down because that is a very deadly weapon.

Dani tribe in Papua Guinea

At marriage, a man must cut off the finger of his right hand and present it to the bride as a dowry for her

And if he wants to divorce her, he cuts off two fingers of his left hand, but if he dies, his wife cuts off the ten fingers of her hand as a sign of her fidelity to him and that she will not marry a man after him.

Whether you marry, divorce or die… there are fingers that must be cut off.

If this kind of tradition is still in existence in Papua Guinea then the people are really subjecting themselves to punishment and the marital slavery.
