A trailer ladened with granite has crushed a twenty-year-old boy, Mr. Godspower Chukwuka Igbomor to death along the ever-busy Ogume/Kwale road by Nduku Primary School, Ogbole Ogume Community in Ndokwa-West Local Government Area of Delta State.

A commercial motorcyclist conveying the deceased also sustained minor injuries in the incident.

Shortly after the ugly incident occurred, the trailer driver disappeared into the thin air for fear of being mobbed.
