An eyewitness who gave a detailed account of what led to the man losing his life said the deceased was a pillion rider on a moving ‘Okada’ on one of the interchange levels when the woman struck him.

The eyewitness said that when the victim fell off the motorbike, the woman pounced on him and attacked him with the large stone.

“The man died before passersby arrived at the scene”, the eyewitness added.

Police later apprehended the woman after a mob had threatened to lynch her.

She was handcuffed and transported in a police pickup truck bucket, escorted by three officers and a man in civilian clothing.
