Angry Youths Killed Businesswoman After Her Driver Hit An Pole, Disconnect Power In Delta Community

The police in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta State, have arrested four persons
including a deaf and dumb in Ubulu-Uku who allegedly murdered a business
woman who traded in metal scraps and for also inflicting wounds on the
driver of the truck conveying the materials.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, youths from Abuedo quarters of
Ubulu-Uku had attacked the woman and the driver with cudgels and other
weapons after the vehicle conveying the materials to Obior, the next
community, hit an electricity pole in the community last week.
The lorry conveying the metal scraps from Umuokwe quarters in
Ogwashi-Uku was said to have hit the electricity pole, thereby
disconnecting power in some parts of Abuedo.
The situation reportedly angered the youth who gave the lorry a hot chase and caught up with it.
Community sources told Metro that the youth held the vehicle hostage
before allegedly attacking the deceased whom they beat to a pulp using
various weapons.

“It was in the process of the beating that the woman collapsed. But some
Good Samaritans rushed her and the driver of the lorry to a nearby
hospital where she eventually gave up the ghost and her remains
deposited in a morgue,” a source said.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, who confirmed
the incident and arrest of the youth said the police were on the trail
of those suspects who escaped after the act.
