Angry students of the Niger State College of Education on Monday blocked the Minna – Suleja road after a tanker driver crushed a pregnant woman who happened to also be a student of the school to death.
The victim who was said to be in the department of Languages in the institution was on a commercial motorcycle when the tanker driver who was on top speed descended upon them
The incident which occurred right in front of the School gate infuriated students who trooped out en masse and the express road to protest the death of one of them.
However, the tanker driver who didn’t stop after committing a gruesome murder was apprehended by the police in Chachanga some kilometers away from where the incident occurred.
Meanwhile, The Provost of the institution, The Police and FRSC officials came to pacify the students but to no avail.
After two hours of protesting, the Police were able to calm the students and bring the situation under control and they also tried to clear the road of traffic.
