The driver of the tipper was said to have absconded immediately after the accident.

A statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Haruna Mohammed, said that both the rider and the Pillion sustained injuries and were rushed by police patrol team to Diocesan hospital Nnewi, where they were confirmed dead by a medical doctor.

The statement read in part: “There was a fatal motor/motorcycle accident along Ukwukpaka junction, Mbanakwa Okpuno  Nnewichi in Nnewi North LGA involving a tipper with Reg No XA 206 KPP and a motorcycle with Reg No QL 500 UWN ridden by one Clement Odo, 50, conveying a pillion, one Anayo Elinye, 38.
