The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Sector Public Education Officer in the state, Kamal Musa, who confirmed the incident, said the driver fled the scene immediately the accident occurred around 9.55am on Tuesday.
“Around 9.55am on November 10, 2020, a male adult whose identity was not captured was crushed to death in a fatal road crash involving a Dangote truck without a registration number near Zenith Bank, Onitsha, along Onitsha-Owerri Road.
“According to eyewitnesses, the truck driver slipped out of his lane due to excessive speeding and crushed a pedestrian, who is well known in the community, hence angry youths revenged by setting the truck ablaze when the driver was nowhere to be found.
“The FRSC rescue team from Upper Iweka outpost was immediately mobilised for rescue operations only to be intercepted by angry youths, who took the corpse of the victim away.”
Musa said the state Sector Commander, Andrew Kumapayi, warned motorists, especially truck drivers, to abide by the stipulated speed limits in built-up areas to avert road crashes.
