Tragedy as vehicle kills family of three, one other in Benin

Tragedy
struck in the early hours of today around Uselu Shell area of Benin
city, Edo state when a private vehicle rammed into four children killing
all.

Uselu is a popular residential area of Benin, located
along the ever-busy Benin-Lagos expressway, leading in and out of New
Benin and Ring Road axis.

Our correspondent reports that the Community is currently on a lockdown following the unfortunate incident.

The
vehicle, a BMW drove by a middle-aged woman, was said to have had break
failures before ramming into the four children-hawkers.

Igbere TV reliably gathered that three of the four children are from one family, and the only children of their parents.

The incident happened exactly at the traditional ground in Uselu, which is put to use only during the coronation of a new Oba.

Community
youths have taken over the major roads in protest, setting the vehicle
ablaze and lighting up a burn fire on the expressway.
