A Union Bank Staff at one of the bank branches in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, Paschal Nnorom, has been killed by a motorist in an arguement over an accident involving his car and that of his killer, one Joseph Udoh.
According to reports, 28-year-old Nnorom met his untimely death on May 13 after leaving his house at Origwe with his wife, Priscilla, whom he married in late 2015 in his Honda CRV SUV car for a friend’s wedding at Elelewon area of Port Harcourt.
It happened that a Toyota Camry driven the banker’s killer, Udoh, hit his SUV at Oil Mill area and both pulled over. Nnorom was said to have alighted from his car to check the damage done to it by Udoh’s alleged aggressive driving but his killer was said to have sat in his, and wound down his glass.
“The Camry hit and dented my husband’s Honda CRV and both of them stopped and my husband alighted from his vehicle and went to meet him. But Udoh refused to alight from his own car. My husband’s hand was still in the door of Udoh’s car and he quickly wound up the glass with my husband’s hand trapped between the glass and the door frame. Then he sped off and dragged him several poles before he stopped,” Late Nnorom’s widow, Priscilla, was quoted as saying in a publication.
It was said that Nnorom broke his spinal cord, and legs as he was being dragged by Udoh’s car, and was confirmed dead on arrival at hospital.
Chukwuemeka Uruakpa, a friend of the deceased who graduated from federal polytechnic Nekede with him, spoke about the last encounter he had with him in a post on Facebook.
