It was both a dramatic and chaotic scene in Benue state, Nigeria on Wednesday when a fuel tanker rammed into an ambulance conveying a corpse to its burial location.
The forceful impact mangled the Volkswagen wagon in which the coffin sat. From the look of things and as seen in the image below, the coffin was not spared from damage.
The situation has caused quite a stir as comments on social media seem to liken the fiasco to a bad omen and double tragedy for the deceased, Eric Ikechukwu Agbachi’s family.
According to a social media user, Jennifer Obasi, the incident occurred along the Taraku-Otipo way at a police checkpoint in Benue State.
She shared photos of the incident on her Facebook page.
