It was a horrible sight beholding the remains of an unidentified man who was crushed to death by a trailer at Koka junction Asaba along the ever-busy Asaba/Onitsha expressway.

The deceased was said to be crossing from Ibusa end to the other side of the expressway on Friday when the trailer driver crushed him.

A motorcycle operator(name withheld) told Tribune Online that the driver immediately escaped after the incident, adding that men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) later evacuated his corpse to the mortuary.

He said: “the man was crossing the road when the trailer driver who was coming from the Onitsha end rammed into him.

“The trailer driver crushed him to pieces. He escaped from the scene with his trailer, disclosing that “it was the men of the Federal Road Safety Corps road that came to gather the pieces of his body that were scattered due to the degree of the accident and evacuated the body.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Bright Edafe while confirming the report, expressed hope that the killer driver would be arrested and brought to book.
