Eyewitnesses attributed the accident to the articulate truck driver loaded with bags of wheat flour travelling to Port Harcourt who was trying to maneuver a ditch which resulted in multiple collisions of vehicles and auto-mobiles.


The incident was said to have grounded vehicular movement on both sides of the expressway for over two hours as mob tries to lynch the driver of the truck.


It was learnt that it took prompt intervention of soldiers attached to 144 Battalion Headquarters in Ukwa West LGA to save the life of the driver and conductor and also to quell the situation which could have degenerated into a possible ethnic clash with the atmosphere already charged.


When contacted, Abia State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna said that he was yet to receive official information about the incident.


Ogbonna assured that the police would investigate and make public its findings.
