Tragic!!! Okada rider crushed while answering phone call in Imo State

Nigeria - A commercial motorcyclist, popularly known as Okada rider, simply identified as Dada, was yesterday crushed to death by a heavy-duty vehicle at Toronto junction, Owerri, Imo State capital.
File: Okada Accident Scene



The victim, in his late 20s, according to reports, hailed from one the northern states of the country, and had lived in Owerri with his relatives for more than five years. Some eyewitnesses who spoke to The Guardian at the scene of the incident, said the deceased was riding with one hand while using the other hand to answer call when he met his sudden death.
He was said to have hit a bump and lost control of the bike, which resulted in him running into the vehicle that was coming from behind.
The body was later evacuated by the police from the scene after the driver had ran to them for safety to avoid being lynched. But for the timely intervention of security personnel, the vehicle was about to be set ablaze by the deceased colleagues. This caused heavy gridlock at the junction until respite returned to the area.
As at the time of filing this report, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, ASP Orlando Ikeokwu, was yet to react to the incident.
