A hit-and-run vehicle has knocked down a female lunatic (SEE PHOTO) along Airport Road in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State, DAILY POST is reporting.
The lunatic was about to cross from the front of God’s Grace Ministry axis when the hit and run vehicle which was alleged to be on a very high speed slammed her on the tarred road as she immediately bled to death at about 3pm on Sunday.
DAILY POST gathered that the vehicle quickly zoomed off the area perhaps, for fear of not being lynched by angry mob.
The lifeless body of the female lunatic has swollen and oozing badly within the area.
Contacted, the Warri Area Commander of the Nigeria Police, ACP Mohammed Shaba confirmed the report saying,” I have confirmed from the Divisional Police Officer of Ugborikoko police station and he said they have written to Uvwie Local Government Council to evacuate the corpse.”
As at the time of filing this report, the Uvwie Local Goverenment Council Chairman, Hon.(Mrs) Stella Dabona was in a meeting when Our Warri – Delta State Correspondent visited the council.
However, the Supervisory Councillor of the Council, Hon. Collins Ighrakpata in a chat with DAILY POST via mobile phone also confirmed the report, stating that bureaucracies delayed the council from evacuating the corpse.
In his words,” I have been aware of the corpse since yesterday. The matter was reported to me but bureaucracies such as police statements, magistrate signature must be done before you can evacuate a corpse. But these shouldn’t be there unless where there is bullet injury. Apart from that, there are officers on ground waiting to evacuate the corpse once we are able to get signature of the magistrate.”
