Petroleum bearing truck, with registration number Oyo ND 755 BDJ on Thursday, crushed a commercial motorcyclist, popularly known as Okada rider, to death on Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja, Lagos.

The truck, which was heading towards Ikeja from the Maryland end, according to an eyewitness account, was trying to avoid a brush with another vehicle, but in the process lost control and ran over the unidentified Okada rider.

But the passenger on the motorcycle was lucky. After sensing danger, he quickly jumped-off the motorcycle, but sustained serious injuries. He was quickly rushed to the hospital by sympathizers.
The driver of the trailer, Daily Sun also learnt, was quickly smuggled away from the scene by policemen and LASTMA officials to avoid being lynched.

Meanwhile, it took the combined efforts of LASTMA officials and the police to remove the body of the deceased trapped under the trailer.
On citing their dead colleague, his fellow Okada men who were on the scene descended on the truck. But for the timely intervention of armed policemen, the vehicle would have been vandalized and the situation gone out of control.
