In Onitsha,Keke Tricycle drivers have turned mad men on wheels.They have also become an army of occupation, killing and maiming anything on their way.Very unruly,impatient and rough,they are just unfit for any decent transportation system.Their victim,lady Justina Eyiuche Olimma,a retired banker and widow,sustained serious leg and body injuries after a Keke driver hauled her and other passengers into a gutter because of the Keke driver’s impatience.Owing to the seriousness of the injury,the leg was amputed.After the amputation,her vibrant life was drastically slowed down.

The rest is now history.Lady Olimma died a fulfilled lady and a dedicated Catholic and Lady of St Mulumba.The Knights and ladies of St Mulumba,St Mary’s Subcouncil and also knights and Ladies of St Francis of Assisi Subcouncil,Onitsha,led by Sir Joe Epundu and Sir Achukwu came to pay their last respect to their fallen member among many other groups at the St Mary’s Catholic church,Inland Town,Onitsha.The death of Lady Olimma underscores one of those recklessness of road users especially Keke drivers in Onitsha.May her soul rest in peace.
