8 People Die as Truck Break Failed in Abuja
At least eight persons were crushed to death when a tipper conveying sharp sand suffered break failure in Mpape, a settlement close to the Maitama District of Abuja.
The incident, it was gathered, occurred on Thursday around 4 p.m. before the Keke NAPEP Park along the road that leads to Mpape junction.
A witness, Mustapha Aminu said that the truck rammed into some tricycles popularly called Keke and vehicles, killing at least 8 people, including students.
Aminu said the driver, having seen the havoc he had caused, abandoned the truck and ran away with the help of a motorcycle.
“When the incident happened, I was close to the road. It was very damaging. It killed about eight people as I counted. People were saying the trailer brake failed. To me, what caused the incident at first was that one of the truck’s tires burst, which made it lose control.
