“Today, about 12:30 pm, a tipper carrying sand failed brake at Ogba bridge and ran into a Lexus SUV and a motorbike,” he stated.

 

“The motorbike was conveying one Mrs Maria who was badly injured and now receiving treatment at the Central Hospital, Benin and a youth corps member who was said to be the sister of Maria, died on the spot.” he added.
