A motorcyclist popularly known as Okada got killed yesterday in Kogi State capital, Lokoja yesterday.



The man who is also a father of 30 children lost his life when he tried to evade a loose tipper. The incident was confirmed by the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC.

The Corps Commander Stephen Dawulung, Kogi FRSC Sector Commander, made this known to NAN in Lokoja on Monday, August 1.

The Man, Abdulsalam Ibrahim, a 60-year old commercial motorcyclist and his passenger were crushed to death by the tipper truck at Ganaja Junction in Lokoja.

"The incident was tragic and very unfortunate,” he said.

He regretted that the accident cut short the life of the bread-winner of 30 children.

"The Accident was a case of hit and run because by the time we responded to the distress call to the area immediately it happened, the driver and the tipper were nowhere to be found.

"Eye witnesses told us that immediately the accident happened, the tipper driver zoomed off leaving the victims’ mangled bodies on the road for sympathisers,” he said.

He said that officers deposited the corpse of man at the Morgue of Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, while that of the passenger was at Ankuri hospital morgue, Lokoja.
