His killer, who had passengers in the vehicle was said to be involved in wrong way driving due to traffic congestion.

In the process, the commercial bus rammed into the officer pushing him into the path of oncoming truck which crushed him to death.

The driver fled the scene with the vehicle and a manhunt has been launched for him, according to  LNSC Corps Superintendent, Ejigbo LCDA, Omokayode Adeoye.

Adeoye said, “We urge the authority of NURTW to investigate this matter and fish out the LT driver who knocked him down and ran away to avert the fracas that might occur between the LNSC officers and the yellow bus drivers.”
