A motor boy, Omoniyi Morakinyo was on Wednesday crushed to death by a truck being driven by his boss, Gbenga Oloja, in a lone auto-accident that occurred on the Ilofa Omu-Aran highway, few metres to the gate of the Federal Government Girls College, Omu-Aran, Kwara state.

Notice.Com.Ng gathered that Oloja and his motor boy had taken a nap under the unregistered truck in the hope of continuing their journey to Ilorin from Kabba, before the accident happened.

As stated by an eye witness, Oloja drove off with the truck, not knowing that Morakinyo was still under the truck, crushing him to death in the process.

in spite of that, Oloja reported himself at Omu- Aran police station after the tragic incident and was subsequently detained.

The vehicle had been taken to the Divisional Police Command where the Divisional Police Officer, Mr Rasaq Adebayo, confirmed the incident, saying the body of the deceased was removed immediately and taken to the General Hospital, Omu-Aran, for autopsy.

He said the body of the deceased, who hailed from Ipoti in Ekiti state, would soon be released to the family for burial.

Adebayo said though the driver had told his own story to the police, the result of the autopsy would determine the actual cause of the death.

He said the case would be transferred to the state headquarters in Ilorin for further investigation.
