Six killed as trucks crash into market in Anambra

A road accident involving a truck loaded with cement and a tipper at Ibughubu Market, Umuchu, in Aguata Local Government Area of State has claimed six lives.

DAILY POST gathered that the two drivers involved in the accident lost their lives, same too for four other unidentified persons around the market.

Both trucks also destroyed property worth millions of naira and left scores of traders injured, including the conductor of one of the trucks.

An eyewitness told DAILY POST that the truck damaged over three shops at the market, including the wares in it.

Mr. Joshua Agbasiri who claimed to witness the accident said both trucks had a head-on collusion, while the impact caused them to veer into the market.

“The cement truck was on a high speed. It pushed the tipper to the other side of the market where it destroyed shops and inflicted injuries on some shop owners,” he said.

Chairman of Ubughubu Village, Mr. Titus Ike said the corpses of the deceased have been deposited in the mortuary, while the injured were receiving medical treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
