A middle-aged man was recently run over by a truck at Kubwa while taking a nap under it.
A witness said the victim, who was fasting, had gone to take a rest under the parked truck after observing a prayer.
He said he had slept off when the driver of the truck came out to move the vehicle without knowing that someone was under it.
According to the witness, the driver initially thought it was a log of wood he climbed over but when he alighted from the vehicle, he saw it was a human being.
He said the victim was immediately rushed to the Kubwa General hospital for medical attention.
The hospital’s Accident and Emergency Unit Head, Paul Olise, confirmed the incident, but said the victim was later moved to General Hospital, Asokoro.
