It was gathered that the Izaga masquerade escaped death when the motorcyclist carrying him was trying to overtake a truck but the long legs of the masquerade hit the truck which caused the other passenger on the same motorcycle to fall off and get crushed to death by the back tyre of the moving truck.

Reacting, the Anambra Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Corps (FRSC) Commander, Adeoye Irelewuyi, attributed the cause of the crash to load violation while also noting that one of the male adults died in the crash.

“Four male adults were involved in the crash. One male adult was killed; one male adult was injured; while two male adults were rescued unhurt.
