The Ayano Ilogbo area of Ogun State was sent into mourning when a Range Rover, belonging to a fast-rising Nigerian singer, Portable, hit a bike rider.

The driver of the car, who is one of Portable’s associates, was running errands when the sad event happened.

Portable’s manager, who confirmed the incident via a telephone chat, noted that the victim died after he was rushed to the hospital.

His manager, named Theresa, told our correspondent, “I’ll be very fast with you because I’m very busy. I was the one that sent one of his boys to go and buy something for me.

“On their way going, maybe the bike man thought that Portable was the one driving or they wanted to collect money or whatever, but the man drove to the vehicle. That was how they hit the man.

“They called me. I left where I was with Portable. We went there. The guy that drove the car rushed the man to the hospital. I got to the hospital and transferred N25,000 to them.

“They said N20,000 was for treatment while N5,000 was for X-ray.”

She noted that when she got to the hospital, the bike rider was complaining about pains in his back, noting that his two female passengers were unhurt.

The manager continued, “When I left the hospital, I gave them another N8,000 to take a cab to where they were going to conduct the X-ray. Immediately after I left there, I reported to the Divisional Police Officer and the Commissioner of Police.

“I called DPO Sango and DPO Ifo to explain what happened. After 10 minutes, they called me back from the hospital that the man had given up.

“When I got the call, I had to call the boy that was in the scenario to go to the station to report himself. He is at the station as I’m talking to you like this.”

When our correspondent reached out to the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, he stated that the DPO had not briefed him on the matter, stating that he would find out.

“The DPO there has not sent the report to me. So I’ll find out,” Oyeyemi said.
