Tragedy yesterday hit Ikere Ekiti in Ikere Local Government Area of Ekiti state, as a baby-girl of about two years of age and a yet-to-be identified adult perished in an auto crash allegedly caused by a yet-to-be identified driver of a Toyota Four-Runner, with registration no: KSF 939 FF, who lost control and rammed into a residential building and a parked Izuzu Jeep belonging to one Barrister Oluwayemi Ojo, a resident of the Araromi community in Ikere.

Speaking with DAILY POST at the scene of the accident, Ojo, who revealed that the vehicle had knocked down four persons before crashing into his vehicle which eventually stopped it, said: “The driver of the vehicle must simply be insane. He was actually on a very high speed and probably lost control and veered off the road into the building. It knocked down four persons including a woman and her less than 2-year-old girl who was coming from the school.

” It was my vehicle, parked here that stopped it from going further to knock down other people. We just learnt that two out of the four people that we made effort to rescue and rushed to the hospital are dead. One of them is a little girl of less than 2.

“People said the driver of the offending vehicle is an official of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) attached to the Ekiti State command of the corps. He was conveying some corps members who quickly removed their belongings from the vehicle and left the scene. Our people did not attack any of them because they were corps members, ” he said.

Meanwhile, the building into which the vehicle first crashed into is now in ruins just as the ruins of the wares inside the shop in front of the building littered the environment.

Many eye-witnesses and sympathizers thronged the scene of the accident. Some wailed over what had happened while other rained curses on the driver of the vehicle.
