Hit-And-Run Car Knocks Down Trader In Ogun State
A dangerous driver, yesterday morning, knocked down and killed a middle-age electronic seller at Iyana Cele, Owode Ijako in Ifo Local Government of Ogun State.
An eyewitness said the victim, whose name was Emmanuel Igbanuwo, lived and sold electronics at Iyana Cele.
He said Igbanuwo was knocked down by the vehicle while trying to cross the Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway.
Sources said the 40-year- old father of one was an indigene of Enugu State, and would soon be taken to his home town for burial.
Ota Divisional Commander of Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) Ajibade Adekunle said it was a pity the driver, who refused to stop, ended Igbanuwo’s life in such manner.
He decried dangerous driving despite continuous public enlightenment on safe driving tips on motor parks, religious homes, market, and schools.
“It does not matter what you believe, the law of retributive justice will surely catch up on everybody and make people reap whatever they sow.
“How can anyone hit a human being, not an animal and run away. This is about the second victim in two months. The last one was when such hit-and-run driver killed a TRACE operative at the Owode Ijako
