One per­son lost his life, while an­other was se­ri­ously in­jured in an ghastly ac­ci­dent that oc­curred around phase 4 area of Kubwa, in Bwari Area Coun­cil of the FCT.

An eye wit­ness ac­count said the vic­tim, a cy­clist, to­gether with his pas­sen­ger, were ne­go­ti­at­ing a bend when they were knocked down by a speed­ing ve­hi­cle from be­hind.

He said the mo­tor­cy­cle sud­denly plunged into a gut­ter, leav­ing the two pas­sen­gers se­ri­ously in­jured, and were rushed to the Kubwa Gen­eral hospi­tal.

City News how­ever learnt that the pas­sen­ger died on the way to the hospi­tal, as a re­sult of ex­ces­sive bleed­ing.

The FRSC Kubwa unit com­man­der, Patrick Davou, said his team was yet to be in­formed of the in­ci­dent, but the head, Ac­ci­dent and Emer­gency unit of Kubwa Gen­eral Hospi­tal, Paul Olise, said they had an ac­ci­dent vic­tim, who was brought in dead, and had since been de­posited at the hospi­tal’s morgue.
