A young lady who died in a ghastly accident has been identified by good Samaritans.
According to one Onunkwo Johnson who witnessed the accident involving a tricycle (Keke Marwa) and a trailer which crushed the tricycle, the lady and the rider of the Keke died as a result of the accident and no one could identify her.
Johnson took to his Facebook wall to post this message:
"Pls help identity this body; there was an accident at Cele-Mile 2 Expressway this night and one person died at a spot and there was no form of identification on her.
Pls share this pix as the Nigeria Red Cross members that were present at the scene are making every effort to deposit the body at a morgue. Don't forget to share this pix pls...tnk u."
But by the morning of Wednesday, April 20, her identity was made known by another Facebook user, Mikemaurice Osege, posted that she has been identified:
"The lady has been identified as Miss Gloria Eze from Mbieri in Mbaitolu LGA of Imo State.
She was involved in an accident at Cele bustop along Apapa Oshodi Expressway close to PM filling station between a Keke and a trailer.
A trailer was making a U turn close to PM filling station and d Keke man could not have patience and he tried to take express instead, but he was hit by an oncoming trailer. It was a head on collision.
Keke man died instantly with his head completely crushed. The lady was still breathing and the passengers in d Keke, but when the team of Members of Nigerian Red Cross society rushed her and the others to the Isolo General Hospital, she was confirmed dead by the doctor; this includes other efforts made by the society. The others survived. The trailer driver ran away with his trailer.
Efforts were made in conjunction with both Red Cross and Illasa Police MTD, to locate the relatives of the diseased but only the Keke man's relative were located. The man was taken to East about 1:49am while the lady's copse has been deposited at the Yaba Morgue for the relative to come for her copse.
U can help to inform people who may know a relative. It was so painful; let us please have patience in whatever we do. May their souls rest in perfect peace, Amen."
