There was a serious commotion this morning at Ogwashi-Uku in Aniocha South LGA of Delta State, as an alleged reckless boy, Uche (surname withheld) ran into not less than seven persons, killing four instantly and injuring three.
The accident happened as visitors were arriving the Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, Ogwashi-Uku for the funeral mass of one of Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amechi’s aides, Tony Iwelu who was recently electrocuted in a hotel room.
Eye witnesses said the young man whose mother was once a councilor in Aniocha South Local Government, must have been drunk or high with weed before taking over the wheels of a red Toyota Camry Car with Number Plate ASB-635-AH used in killing his victims.
Sources alleged that the boy had been causing his parents trouble, and at a time was flown abroad to utilise a better opportunity in a sane environment.
However, it was gathered that the boy misused the opportunity and came back to continue in his gangsterism and waywardness.
It was further revealed that he even joined the vigilante group, which made him more violent than ever as he uses the platform to intimidate his victims and causing havoc in the community.
Meanwhile, the people who the alleged reckless boy killed included a family of four who were returning from church where they had gone to clean on a Saturday morning.
