A dark blue Honda Accord with registration number FKJ 994 AJ and yellow tricycle commonly known as Keke Napep with number plate BKL 106 QX which the driver and operator are yet to be ascertained as at Wednesday night 21st May, 2019 had a head on collision at Ebonyi River, Mgbo Agbaja, Abakaliki .
Citizens’ Advocate gathered that the tricycle carrying full load of poultry feed was heading to Nwofe after the downpour when it suddenly collided with the car going to Abakaliki which led to the tricycle damaging beyond repair.
According to an eyewitness motorcyclist, Mr. John Nwovu, the incident happened after the heavy downpour of that fateful night.
The motorcyclist said, “When he got to the scene of the accident shortly after the incident, he saw sympathizers struggling to save the keke rider who was trapped in-between bags of the feed.”
“Thank God that the keke rider was not killed, but he was injured and taken to the hospital.”
He told Citizens’ Advocate that both driver and the keke rider were rushed to an undisclosed hospital by sympathizers who got to the scene after the incidence but could not say if they survived or not.
