“The body of the dead passenger has been deposited in the morgue. The truck driver was speeding and later lost control before diving into a ditch at the Giri area of FCT. The truck was badly damaged.”
The Federal Capital Territory Federal Road Safety Corps Sector Commander, Ogar Ochi, confirmed the incident, adding that officers of the agency had since cleared the wreckage.
