A senior police officer was on Thursday crushed to death at Dei-dei along Kubwa-Zuba Expressway.
A witness said the deceased was crossing the ever-busy expressway from the Mobile Police barracks when he was knocked down by an oncoming car.
He said the driver, who was travelling in a private car with his family members for the Sallah celebration, was on top speed and could not avoid hitting the deceased.
The witness, who put the accident time at about 7am, blamed the deceased for not using the pedestrian bridge, adding that he was immediately rushed to the Kubwa General hospital.
At the Kubwa General Hospital, head of Accident and Emergency Unit, Paul Olise, confirmed the accident and said the deceased had already been moved from the hospital for burial.
FCT police spokesperson, Deputy Superintendent Hyelhira Atine Daniel, said she was not aware of the incident when contacted.
