Woman Killed by Hit-and-Run-Driver in Anambra


A woman was on Sunday killed by a hit-and-run-driver in Awka, the capital city of Enugu State on Sunday night. 

According to the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra, Mr Andrew Kumapayi, the woman died instantly after she was hit. 

He said the remains had been deposited at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital morgue, Awka.

Kumapayi called on pedestrians to be careful on the road, especially during festive periods, because of increased vehicular movement.

“My advice to road users especially pedestrians during this season is to be extra careful when crossing the road.

“They should endeavour to use the pedestrian bridge provided for them if any, and if there is none, they should look left, right and left again to make sure that the road is free before crossing,” Kumapayi said. 

He urged people to wear reflective clothes when walking in the night.
