One was killed at Ndubia in Izzi Local Government Aea of the state while another four were killed at Okposi in Ohaozara LGA of the state.

At Izzi, a pregnant woman from the Ndubia area of the council was crushed to death by a speeding trailer while on her way to a nearby market.

A witness said the driver of the trailer after killing the woman, abandoned the vehicle and ran into a nearby police station to avoid being lynched by angry residents of the area.

In a similar development, four persons, a woman, her two children, and a motorcyclist, were also crushed to death in front of Urban Secondary School, Okposi along Okposi-Ugwulangwu road in Ohaozara local government area of the state by another truck said to be fully loaded with building materials.
