A heavy duty truck has killed a Nigerian Army officer of the Amphibious Training School (ATS) in Calabar, Cross River State capital.
The incident occurred on Monday (November 9, 2020) morning at about 7:25am at Ikot Ansa Bus Stop along Murtala Mohammed Highway, Calabar Municipality local government area.
Eyewitnesses said the Army officer was trying to overtake the truck which belongs to Flour Mills (Niger Mills) when the truck rammed into him, thereby killing him on the spot.
“Now, all trucks belonging to Flour Mills, when they heard about the incident, they started packing by the roadside. You can see about three trucks lining up the road already. No one wants to drive because of the fear of being arrested by the Army”, a source who spoke under anonymity said.
