FRSC Sector Commander in Cross River, Maikano Hassan, has confirmed a single incident that resulted in the death of a middle-aged woman in Calabar on Sunday when she was hotly pursuing her husband over his "lover."
Eyewitnesses reported that the event was brought on by excessive speed, and the Sector Commander verified this to news crews.
He said the incident involving a Toyota Highlander which occured on the Muritala Mohammed Highway in Calabar claimed the life of the lone female driver who veered off the road into a ditch by the road.
His words :”Though the woman was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, but she was said to have died few minutes later due to the injury sustained from the incident.”
The woman allegedly killed herself after losing control of her automobile while pursuing her husband, who was suspected of having a "side chick" in his car.
According to sources, the woman attempted to block her husband's car with the Toyota Highlander she was driving when she saw him leaving the SPAR shopping mall with another woman.
According to reports, her husband drove his car out of the attempted barrier and onto the Murtala Muhammed expressway while his wife pursued him vigorously.
In an attempt to outrun her husband, she lost control of the speeding car, drove off the road, and rammed it head-on into a tree, irreparably destroying it and killing herself in the process.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
