Her Husband the deseased came down from their vehicle, went to Mr Udoh to inquire why he (Mr Joseph Udoh will hit his vehicle), but Mr Udoh still inside his car remained stubborn and refused to apologise.
As soon as Pascal placed his hands through the window of Mr Udoh’s car, Mr Udoh wound up his glass and drove off while the deseased (Pascal) hand was trapped at the window.
Mr Udoh dragged the deseased (Pascal) for a short distance, while dragging him, his body hit a pavement, which led to the breaking of his spinal cord and legs. He slipped into unconsciousness and died shortly afterwards.
Angry mob who saw what Udoh has done attacked him and gave him the beating of his life. He almost died, he was saved only when the Nigerian Police came to the scene.
The deseased Mr Pascal Chukwuemeka Nnorom was a staff of Union Bank of Nigeria.
The deceased’s wife, Priscilla, who fainted after hearing about her husband’s death and had to be revived, spoke about it. She said:
“He dragged him several poles before he stopped. He was everything to me.”
“When the mob was beating Udoh, he told them he was ready to die, as far as he had done what he wanted to do.”
Priscilla however wants justice to be served, and for Udoh to be brought to book.
