Following the killing of three persons by a truck at Afikpo-Abakaliki Expressway, in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State on Saturday morning, youths in the area took to the streets to voice their grievances.
According to Punch, the articulated vehicle veered off the road and took the life of three youths said to be motorcyclist and two passengers.
Reacting, Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, in a message, promised, “Help will come immediately.”
“We are not happy over this development. A truck killed three of our youths and dumped their corpses in the bush and that’s why we are protesting about it.
“I will advise people [road users] to turn back. We are not happy at all. How can the truck driver kill our youths and hide their corpses?” a community source fumed.
