Car crushes teenager to death in Osun

A 15-year-old boy was on Monday crushed to death after a Sport Utility Vehicle lost control and rammed into him in Osogbo, Osun State.

The deceased was about to cross the road when the incident happened.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, an eye witness said the deceased, who went to Ayegbaju Market in the metropolis to buy pepper, was returning home when he was killed.

The vehicle was said to have lost control while on speed and skipped off the highway before ramming into the deceased.

The grey coloured SUV with registration number, Lagos JJJ 243 EF was said to have a middle age man, his wife and kid as occupants.

While the occupants were quickly ferried away to safety, an angry mob set the vehicle ablaze.

Another eyewitness, who knew the deceased, said he was preparing for his Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination before he met his untimely death.

“The vehicle was coming from Ogo-Oluwa area and rammed into the boy, killing him instantly,’’ she said.

Mr Rasaki Azeez, the father of the deceased and Deputy Chairman of NURTW at Fakunle Motor Park in Osogbo, said he could not believe his son was dead.

Azeez, who was devastated by the incident, said sympathisers came to call him at the park to retrieve the body of his son.

He said that the corpse had been deposited at the morgue of Ladoke Akintola University hospital, Osogbo.
