Fuel Tanker Crushes Commercial Motorcyclist To Death In Ondo Few Weeks After His Wedding (Graphic)

A fuel tanker crushed a commercial motorcyclist, simply
identified as Kayode, to death, at Oma Junction, Alagbaka area of Akure,
Ondo State capital on Friday.
 

The incident happened when the fuel tanker which was
heading towards Yeoma Plaza was stopped by the traffic warden on duty.
The tanker driver lost control of the vehicle and rammed into the
motorcyclist who was approaching the junction, killing him on the spot. 
 
“The tanker was stopped by the traffic warden but the
driver claimed he lost control of the vehicle and rammed to the bike man
and crushed him. The tanker first dragged the cyclist forward and
eventually crushed him before stopping. We tried to rescue him but it
was too late because the vehicle was on him.”

The younger brother of the deceased escaped unhurt from the accident
but lamented that Kayode got married a couple of weeks ag,  while his
wife is pregnant.

Angry Okada riders, however, besieged the scene of the accident and
descended on the driver of the vehicle. He was quickly rescued by some
security operatives who took him away.
