A 400 Level student of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, Emmanuel Maduka, was on Tuesday crushed to death by a truck belonging to Dangote Cement Plc.

The said truck conveying cement to an unknown destination is said to have slid off the road while trying to avoid a motorcycle rider and a Toyota Camry along the ever busy Police Station road in the university community.

Oasis Magazine (OM) learnt that apart from the student that lost his life, a motorcycle (okada) rider and a lady, both yet to be identified, had their lives also snuffed out during the accident.

A friend of Maduka, Matthew (Biggy) who in tears recalled special moments with the late student, narrated how Maduka completed his Pre-degree programme in DELSU many years ago, adding that the deceased was a First Class student with CGPA of 4.7 in the Department of Economics.

“How can this happen? Today is supposed to be his mother’s birthday. Who will disclose this bad news to his mother now,” he lamented.

At the time of filing this report, the body of Maduka was still trapped under the trailer, as police officers, vigilante operatives, personnel of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and sympathizers are still making frantic efforts to lift the truck off the ground and possibly rescue any other victim trapped.

Some sources said the death toll might increase, saying other victims are still trapped under the trailer and the cement that fell off the truck during the tragic incidence.

OM gathered that the conductor of the vehicle was beaten up mercilessly by angry passersby and thereafter handed over to the police.

The whereabouts of the driver was still unknown at press time.
