Truck crushes 300-Level TASUED student to death in Ogun

Unread postby Wsj » Thu May 17, 2018 12:16 pm

A 300-Level Human Kinetics student of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijebu-Ode, Kofoworola Kuku, was on Wednesday crushed to death by a truck.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the victim was knocked down on the Sagamu-Benin expressway while going to school.


The development sparked wild protests by her fellow students, who blocked and disrupted vehicular movement on the road until the intervention of security operatives.

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) Sector-Commander in Ogun, Clement Oladele, who confirmed the incident, attributed the death of the victim to impatience and wrongful crossing of the expressway by the motorcyclist conveying her.

Oladele said the motorcyclist survived unscathed although the victim was knocked down by the speeding truck and died on the spot.

The FRSC official said the victim’s corpse was evacuated by the FRSC rescue personnel and deposited at the morgue of the State Hospital in Ijebu-Ode.

“It’s a very sad occurrence because the victim was the daughter of a retiree of the FRSC.

“She was the last child of an FRSC Marshal, Shakiru Kuku, who retired two years ago,”

Oladele added that calm had been restored to the hitherto riotous situation caused by students of TASUED on the Sagamu-Benin expressway over the victim’s death.

He advised motorists and road users to always adhere to speed limit and other traffic regulations on the highways to prevent unwanted accidents.

The university’s spokesperson, Nuraen Bakenne told NAN that the TASUED community was pained by the untimely death of Kuku.

“The TASUED management sympathises with the family, relations and friends of the student.

“The information reaching us is that the driver and truck had been apprehended by the police and was being held at the Igbeba Police Command in Ijebu-Ode,” Bakenne said.
