“He jumped on a moving truck that was heading outside town and the next thing was that he fell from the back of the moving truck and before we could rush him to the clinic, he died,” a witness narrated.

The corpse of the teenager was wrapped in the Nigeria green-white-green flag and put on the back of the open truck for display at the Amukpe area of Sapele.
