This is really sad a man in his ear­ly 20’s yester­day met his un­timely death in Aba, Abia state, when he was pushed down from a moving com­mercial bus, and even­tually crushed by an­other commercial bus that was coming from behind.

Sunday Sun  reports that the young man whose identity could not be immediately ascertained had boarded the commercial bus that was heading towards the Aba main motor park.

It was also gathered that the men in the commercial bus attempted to dispossess him of his belongings in­side the bus.But the young man was said to have resisted the hoodlums, and the driver of the bus veered off Asa road in the melee into Azikiwe Road where they opened the door of their vehicle and pushed the young man out of the moving bus.
To make matters worse for the young man, a com­mercial bus said to be com­ing from behind from the Ariaria market axis crushed him and killed him instant­ly.

An eye witness said,
 “The commercial bus veered into Azikiwe Road from Asa Road on high speed, and before anybody knew what was happening, some men inside the bus pushed the young man out from the bus and sped off.Before people around could rush to give him a helping hand, another com­mercial bus coming from Ariaria market crushed him, and he died instantly.”
When Sunday Sun visited the scene of the incident, the corpse of the young man was still lying in the middle of the road as plain clothe police men who ar­rived the place were trying some numbers they found on his mobile phone to con­tact his relations.
