Driver who killed four school children in Anambra state is nabbed

The Anambra State Police Command has arrested a driver, who rammed into schoolchildren on Monday in Oba, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The driver, it was gathered, killed four of the children and injured 10 others.

The Oba Divisional Police Officer, Ifeanyi Abanaofor, told newsmen on Wednesday that the driver had been arrested.

He said, “The injured are about 10 and they have been taken to various hospitals for medical attention.

“The driver of the ill-fated vehicle, Mr Chibuzor Elebo, has been arrested.”

A source attributed the crash to the recklessness of Elebo, who was said to be answering a telephone call while driving an Infinity SUV when the incident occurred.

 “He lost control and veered off his lane into the other lane before ramming into the kids, killing three instantly, while the fourth died at the hospital,” the source stated.
