Tragedy struck in front of Lafenwa Comprehensive High School, Ota, Ogun State, last Thursday, when a 15-year-old pupil, Miss Kemi Obanla, was crushed to death by a truck driver.
It was learnt that Kemi was killed while running errands for her class teacher.
It was alleged that the teacher had asked Kemi to go and buy cooked ‘ofada’ rice for her around 10am on the day.
An eyewitness, who craved anonymity, said the SS1 pupil was knocked down by a truck while crossing the road.
He said Kemi died while she was being rushed to the hospital.
