A female staff of Ilesa University in Osun State, identified as Ogunmokun Fanimo was on Wednesday killed after a truck fell over her while driving home.

It was gathered that the incident, which took place a few meters from the university’s gate, involved a container filled with cashew nuts falling off a truck and landing on the woman’s car, leading to immediate panic and efforts to rescue the trapped victim.

Sources within the university revealed that she had just concluded her day’s work and was on her way home when the tragic event unfolded.

A senior staff member of the University of Ilesa, preferring to remain anonymous, recounted the circumstances, stating, “The vehicle driven by our colleague was trapped under a container filled with cashew nuts being conveyed by a truck… She is feared dead.”

The accident also caused a significant traffic jam on the busy expressway as the fallen container and vehicles involved blocked a part of the road, complicating rescue and recovery efforts.

Confirming the incident, Kehinde Adeleke, the spokesperson for the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Osun State said,  “Our operatives and other security agencies were at the scene of the accident. The driver of the car, a woman, died.”
