It was gathered that the deceased, a driver with a popular transport company, had gone to recover one of the company’s vehicles that broke down, when their towing van bruised a soldier’s car.

An argument ensued and the soldier attacked the deceased with a jack knife.

He then got in his vehicle and fled. But road users and other passers-by chased him. He abandoned his car and ran into a bush behind a private building at Agbede in Edo State, from where he was arrested.
