An eyewitness who identified himself as Mr. Abuchi Okwara told Punch correspondent that the young girl who was a JSS2 student identified as Chinyere had been sent out of school by the school authorities over non-payment of school fees.

He said, “They were three that were sent out of the school for not paying school fees. But Chinyere was the one that was killed by the truck.

"The incident took place at about 9 O’Clock near that bus stop.

“It was while they were heading home to get money which they were instructed to pay in the bank that she was killed while others escaped by the whiskers. The vehicle cut off her head.”

Punch reports that all attempts to reach the principal of the school, Mrs. Edith Mojeke, has proved futile.
