It was a double tragic situation as two motorcyclists collided and died on the spot while accompanying a corpse home from the mortuary for final burial rites in Mbieri, Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State.
The sad incident took place on Friday, May 26, 2017 at the boundary between Eziome Mbieri and Amaolu Mbieri communities, a few metres away from the home of the deceased, Mr. George Eke.
It was gathered that the deceased duo were displaying their expertise with their motorcycles in their bid to give their last honour to the dead without knowing they would be joining him soon.
A source said: “As we were coming home, some motorcyclists who had followed us to the morgue started the ‘traditional’ display of expertise with their motorcycles as a way of celebrating the dead.”
The remains of the duo have been deposited at the mortuary.
