He said he gave the car to an electrician who killed the deceased on the night of December 31, 2017. But after interrogation, he confessed that he was actually the driver of the car.”
The driver later confessed that he committed the crime and it happened while he was on his way from his shop in Ogunpa area of Ibadan and that he was out in search for fuel at the time that the incident happened.
“I was coming when I saw some people beside the road on that night. The brake failed and I lost control of the vehicle. I hit an electric pole in the process and the car was about to somersault when I hit the man. I did not know if he died. I managed to escape from the scene and took a commercial motorcycle to turn myself in.”
