0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.





It was really a bad day when a bullion van belonging to a commercial bank has killed two persons and injured three prospective JAMB candidates who were waiting for their PIN number after registering at a Skye Bank branch in Nasarawa, Lafia.

According to an eyewitness, the incident occurred at about 3pm on Tuesday,  when the driver of the van said to be on top speed lost control of the Toyota Hilux pick-up van. He then rammed into a commercial motorcycle rider conveying a JAMB candidate.

An eye witness said that the reckless van driver was also eating while driving.
He said, “The vehicle crushed the okada rider, his passenger and then knocked down three other persons standing along the road. The okada rider died on the spot while the JAMB candidate later died the same day at about 6pm at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital where she was rushed to for treatment.”

One of the victims, who spoke on his sickbed, Mr James Chima, said,  “I was standing by the roadside beside the Skye Bank premises when suddenly a police van rammed into me and I found myself under the vehicle.”

Another eyewitness, whose sister was hit by the van, said he narrowly escaped being hit by the vehicle. He said, “I was with my sister, Aisha Ikpanago, who had just completed her JAMB registration process in Skye Bank and we were discussing when suddenly the police vehicle knocked her down and hit other prospective JAMB candidates.”

Ikpanago could not speak when she was visited in the hospital as she was writhing in pain.

The police spokesman in the state, DSP Idrisu Kennedy, confirmed the incident, but noted that the vehicle involved in the accident belonged to a bank and not the police. He said investigation had commenced into the accident.
