Yesterday I posted a story about the Graduate Selling Plantain and Roasted Corn In Suit By The Road Side . Some people never believed that graduates in Nigeria are in deep trouble.

Today, I read about a tragic story in Ikere-Ekiti on Tuesday as the back of a trailer detached, hit an abandoned tanker and crushed a 27-year-old graduate selling roasted yam.

Although the lady was rescued and taken to a hospital immediately after the accident, she later died after about two hours.

The lady, Busayo Akogun, a graduate of College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, was said to be assisting her mother at a roadside kiosk when the accident occurred.  Her mother was also said to have been crushed against the wall of a filling station and sustained a serious injury.

One of the eyewitnesses, Mr. Adekunle Olowolafe, said the legs of the mother were crushed.

Blood stains were seen in the rubble while personal effects of the victims littered the scene when our correspondent visited the area.

But the grill and the local oven on which the lady and her mother were roasting the yam were still standing while the roasted yams were well set on the grill.

Policemen and officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps who arrived the scene quickly evacuated the victims to a hospital.

But some of the sympathisers who assisted the officials later returned and said Akogun had died.

Also, two trailers and a Golf car were involved in another accident at Aramoko-Ekiti on Tuesday.

Eyewitnesses told our correspondent on the telephone that the trailers collided and their impact affected the car.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Ekiti State, Mr.  Mohammed Jimoh, who confirmed the accidents to our correspondent, said two persons were injured in the Ikere accident and nobody was injured in Aramoko.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Governor of the state, Mrs. Funmi Olayinka, who was among those who first visited the Ikere-Ekiti accident scene, has cautioned drivers to always obey traffic rules.

The deputy governor who noted that over speeding and lack of consideration for other road users was common among trailers’ drivers, warned them to be cautious on the road.

From ur report,she was assisting her to roast yam and its not as if she own the business..if my mother fries akara on the road even if am a P.hd holder,It doesn't stop me from assisting her. This is not a matter of graduate selling roasted yam like you want to point out to support you post yesterday.

If has a job what will she be doing at the road side, helping mamma because no job! She cannot be staying with the mother and eating and living for free that is why she was there helping from there she can eat too. The sick system has no means of evaluating and appraising manpower in terms of people with employment and  the unemployed and with an active action programme for employment.]
