UGHELLI â€” PANDEMONIUM broke out at Ughelli, Delta State, weekend, as a commercial motorcyclist (Okada rider) was crushed to death by a trailer.
Moments after, irate Okada riders, numbering over two hundred, mounted a road block at the accident scene along the East/West road, issuing threats to drivers and leaving travelers trapped for several hours.
Vanguard gathered that the â€˜okadaâ€™ rider attempted to flee from the on-coming trailer when the motorcycle slipped over and was crushed by the back tyre of the trailer.
Vanguard further gathered that the trailer driver, on sighting the cyclists in his pool of blood, immediately fled the accident scene.
Mainwhile, efforts made by motorists and sympathizers to track down the trailer driver proved abortive.
