The pupil whose name was given as Chinyere was on her way home with 2 other pupils of Community Secondary School, Adazi-Ani, in the Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State, after they were sent home by the school’s management for not paying their school fees.


“They were three that were sent out of the school for not paying their school fees. But Chinyere was the one that was killed by the truck. The incident took place at about 9am near the school. It was while they were heading home that she was killed while others escaped by a whisker. The vehicle severed her head from her body,” an eyewitness, Abuchi Okwara told PUNCH.

    This is tragic… From the name of the school., it should be a Government-owned school and I understand that school fees up to JSS3 is free as per UBE… Majority of the articulated vehicles are not ROAD WORTHY. They have killed many Nigerians and our law enforcement and LGAs are only interested in collection of levies from them. The Government is responsible for the death of this child in addition to the Owner & Driver of the Truck, May the gentle soul of Chinyere rest in peace.
