Two people were murdered and two others were injured in a vehicle accident in the Federal Capital Territory on Tuesday.
The accident is said to have happened around 9 a.m. in the FCT’s Idu forest area.
PUNCH The tragedy occurred when a cement truck collided with two tricycles and a motorcycle, according to Metro.
Two people are alleged to have died on the spot, while two others were injured and sent to Gwagwa’s Crown Hospital.
A resident, Johnson Oye, said, “He (truck driver) came to supply cement to those building houses here. We can’t say if he actually lost control or was trying to overtake them; we just saw that the truck had knocked down two tricycles and a motorcycle.
“The motorcyclist suffered a high degree of injury and was taken to the Crown Hospital. The other two that died were in one of the tricycles. The truck driver did not wait after hitting them; he was ready to crush anybody that stood in his way.”
Alimat, one of the survivors, claimed she was on her way to obtain medication for her sick child when she was involved in the incident.
She said, “The rider of the motorcycle I boarded sustained serious injuries.”
Samuel Ochi, Sector Commander of the FCT Federal Road Safety Corps, said he was unaware of the accident.
