Road Accident

Revenue Drive In Umuahia Turns Bloody As 42 Year old Man Dies Chasing Truck

A 42 year old man has been reported killed, while chasing a moving truck for toll payment. This incident according to reports from verifiable media sources, occurred on Tuesday afternoon in Umuahia, the Capital of Abia state.

Eye witness reports had it that at around 1pm, the man, identified as Ikechukwu Ochi was forcefully trying to stop a moving truck at Cooperative. The eye witness said that Ikechukwu accosted the truck with four other persons but the truck driver refused to stop.

In another desperate attempt, the 42 year old man climbed the moving truck to stop the wheels but fell off suddenly. The eye witness said:

“In a desperate bid to stop the driver, the man climbed on the vehicle, perhaps to get hold of the steering and force the driver to pull up.

“Suddenly, the man fell off from the vehicle with a heavy bang on the tar. It was not clear what made him fall”.

The deceased was rushed to FMC Umuahia by his compatriots but was unfortunately confirmed dead upon arrival.

However, several questions as to why these revenue agents like Ikechukwu (God bless his soul) should try to forcefully stop moving vehicles knowing it is dangerous, has remained unanswered.

What do you think of this?
