The last hasn’t been heard of the accident we reported yesterday, regarding a bus driver who hit two sachet water sellers while a bribe-seeking policeman was struggling with him for the control of his steering wheel in Benin, Edo State.
According to new reports, a lecturer at the University of Benin in Edo State, Dr Stella Okotie, was a casualty.
The accident happened on Monday evening, when policemen attached to Ugbowo Division were pursuing a commercial bus in a bid to extort some money from the driver.
This led to a physical struggle between the driver and the policemen for the wheels. While struggling, the bus driver ran into Dr Okotie, who was standing by the main gate.
