The Okadaman was said to have jumped from the machine leaving the poor lady who was crushed to death by an oncoming J5 Peugeot bus which ran over her in the middle of the road, killing her instantly.

According to an eyewitness who identified himself as Aliyu, after running over the lady, the bus driver sped off leaving the mangled body of the deceased on the road, adding that it was some sympathizers who rushed to the scene of the accident that called officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), who conveyed the remains to the Abaji General Hospital.

“After the deceased was confirmed dead by doctors, a certificate of death was issued and her corpse was conveyed in the FRSC van to her relatives for burial,” Aliyu said.
