A teenager who was listening to music using his ear piece has been killed by a truck.
An 18-year-old boy identified as Promise, was sent to the great beyond when a truck crushed him while he was listening to music using his phone's ear piece in Calabar, Cross River State, on Monday, November 13.
The young man who was a student of Zero Limit Computer School located along Barracks Road in the city, was said to be a very gifted dancer and stunt guy who performed prominently during the last Calabar Carnival and was looking forward to upcoming Carnival when he was knocked down.
Eyewitnesses said Promise must have raised the volume of the music so loud and did not hear the truck which had apparently had a brake failure, coming behind him.
May his soul rest in peace.
