One miss Blessing Kalu, a top-level final-year student of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, has been knocked and killed by a truck in Umudike Oboro in the Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State.
Blessing, an indigene of Nkporo, in the Bende LGA of Abia State, had boarded an okada (commercial motorcyclist) to a gas station to fill her cylinder up with cooking gas, and met her sad end while on her way home.
According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the motorcycle Kalu boarded was on the verge of overtaking the truck when the accident happened. She was knocked down and thereafter started breathing heavily. She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Kalu who obtained a first-class in Entrepreneurial Studies student, finished her final examination last Friday. She went to church on Sunday, August 22 for thanksgiving and sadly, lost her life on Monday, August 23. Her body has since been deposited in the morgue.
May her soul rest in peace, Amen.
