Underage Driver ‘Kills’ NYSC Member, Woman In Fatal Accident



An underage commercial bus driver, whose identity couldn't be established last night, has reportedly killed a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member and another woman in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State.
The incident happened on Ohanku, off Ngwa Road, in Aba South Local Government Area.

Some residents told The Nation that speeding caused the killing.

It was learnt that the driver lost control of the vehicle and ran over the victims.

Investigation revealed that some conductors and mechanics use vehicles in their custody for commercial purposes, without the knowledge of the bus or car owners, to make brisk business.

It was also learnt that the underage driver had been handed over to security agents, while another account said the lad fled the scene immediately the incident happened.

The bodies of the deceased were said to have been deposited in a nearby morgue.

“The commercial bus driver was heading to Owerre-Aba when he lost control of the car and killed two persons – a man in NYSC uniform and a woman. He also crashed into a shop and part of a building. People on the scene said they warned the driver for his recklessness,” a source said.

Police Commissioner Anthony Ogbizi and the command spokesman Geoffrey Ogbonna, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), did not respond last night to the text messages sent to their phones on the incident.
