FRSC Sector Commander in Cross River State, Maikano Hassan, has confirmed a single incidence that resulted in the death of a middle-aged woman in Calabar yesterday when she was hotly pursuing her husband over his lover.
When speaking with Vanguard yesterday, the Sector Commander said that overspeeding was to blame for the event.
He said that the sole female driver of the Toyota Highlander, who ran off the road and into a ditch next to the road during the collision on Calabar’s Murtala Muhammed Highway, died.
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.”
Reports have it that the woman was said to be in pursuit of her husband, who was alleged to be with a side chick in his car when she lost control of her vehicle, killing herself in the process.
A source who didn’t want her name in print told that the woman sighted her husband leaving SPAR shopping mall in the company of another female when she tried to block her husband’s car with the Toyota Highlander she was driving in.
The source said: “Her husband was said to have manoeuvred his vehicle out of the attempted blockade then took the Murtala Muhammed highway, with his wife in serious pursuit.
“In a bid to outrun her husband, she lost control of the speeding vehicle, veered off the road and slammed the vehicle on a tree, damaging the vehicle beyond repairs and also killing herself,” the source revealed.
