24-Year-Old Enugu Varsity Graduate Crushed To Death While Taking Injured Father To Hospital.

A fatal accident at Akesan Junction in Igando area, along the Isheti-LASU road, Lagos has claimed the live of a 24-year-old graduate of Sociology from Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), Miss Chinenye Roseline Ude.

The lady was killed last week while taking her father, Mr. Anthony Ude, who had an injury on his hand to the nearby Divine Blessing Hospital, across the Isheri-LASU Road, in Akesan village, for treatment.

It was gathered that while they were waiting to cross to the opposite side of the expressway, the
driver of a tipper lorry, with registration EPE 299 XE, loaded with sand, lost control of the wheel and headed for the side of the road where Mr. Ude and his daughter stood.
When they saw the vehicle heading towards them, father and daughter fled in different directions.

Sadly, the vehicle went after Chinenye, killing her instantly.

According to a witness, the vehicle’s rear tyres crushed Chinenye’s head on the paved road.

“The pathetic incident instantly attracted a huge crowd of sympathisers and passers-by. People could not restrain their tears,” one witness said.
Daily Sun reports that soon after the accident, the police at Igando were alerted. On arrival, they inspected the scene and conducted short investigation before arranging for an ambulance to take the body away.

The tipper driver and the deceased’s father, according another eyewitness, Mr. Azuka Obidinnu, were taken to Igando Police Station while the tipper was impounded.

After a brief stay at the station, a policeman, Sergeant Onee Kanu, and Mr. Obidinnu, conveyed the remains of the deceased to the mortuary of Mainland Hospital, Yaba, where it was deposited.

Meanwhile, the driver of the tipper lorry is being detained at Igando Police Station pending the outcome of investigations.
