An unidentified nursing mother has been reportedly crushed to death by suspected ‘yahoo boy’ along DLA road in Asaba, Oshimili South Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that the nursing mother and her two months-old baby went to buy bread along DLA Road on Tuesday when she was crushed by a 28-year-old suspected Internet fraudster.
Our source said, “The woman was walking on the walkway when the ‘yahoo boy’ who was on speed veered off the road and crushed the woman to instant death.
“The boy has been arrested by the police while the Toyota Corolla vehicle was taken to the police custody,” the source said.
In a related development, an empty patrol tanker killed three persons along Aboh-Ogwashi-Uku Road.
The accident was said to have occurred between an empty patrol tanker vehicle with registration number, BAU-334 XA, and a Delta line bus with registration number, XR 185-ENU.
A security source in Ogwahi-Uku said that the tanker driver had rammed into the Delta line bus that was en route Asaba from Ogwahi-Uku leaving two men and a lady dead.
“The incident occurred at about 12 noon on Saturday while the tanker was said to be heading to Warri.
“Lexus Jeep had carelessly overtaken the tanker but in a bid not to smash the Jeep, the driver had to swerve towards the opposite direction, leaving its lane entirely and found itself facing the oncoming Delta line bus from the opposite side.
“The tanker driver collided with the Delta line bus, killing the driver on the spot, while the male passenger on the front seat with him had opened his own side of the door and jumped out.
“Luck, however, ran against him, as the tyre of the tanker truck ran over him, crushing him immediately.
“The lady herself who was rushed to a private hospital due to various degrees of injury was reported to have died in the evening.
“Currently, the driver of the truck is in the custody of the police, after he was rescued from angry mob that besieged the scene of the accident.”
When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, confirmed the accidents, adding that the suspect who killed the nursing mother was in police custody.
