Photos: Lorry crushes woman & her grand child at Awka-Etiti, Anambra

A Lorry yesterday crushed a mother and her grand child to death at IKB Junction, Ejighinandu, near Eke Awka-Etiti along Nnobi-Ekwulobia Express Way in Idemili South LGA of Anambra State. The lorry lost its break and crushed the aged woman, a widow selling banana and the child, both heading home after she had closed for the day.

With the corpses of the victims decapitated, heads crushed and the woman’s hand cut off, the children of the woman were crying uncontrollably beside the bodies while the crowd watched helplessly.

However, a convoy of Anambra state Gov Willie Obiano stopped at the scene while coming back from a function at Mbosi. Under his supervision, Obiano’s medical team, with the help of his security officers gathered the corpses into an ambulance and took them to Our Lady of Fatima mortuary, together with the woman’s son and daughter.

While condoling with the people of Awka-Etiti, Governor Obiano urged them to go about their normal businesses promising to do his best to soothe the pains of the bereaved family. He also warned careless drivers to stay off Anambra State.
