When contacted, one of the executives of a Drivers Union in Akure who spoke under the condition of the anonymity confirmed the incident.
Also the leadership of NURTW in Ekiti state also confirmed that the vehicle involved was known to be that of a driver called Baba Ikere but declined further comment on the issue.
