In what seemed like a road drama at about 10:30 am today, Ogba residents were not prepared for the incident that would take place in their environment.

A hit and run pick up driver bashed the vehicle of another driver and attempted to escape. The driver who refused to relent gave the pickup driver a hot pursuit. He later caught up with the driver and climbed onto his vehicle demanding he pay for damages.

While the offending driver was trying to hold brakes to make the man fall off his truck, the pursuer ended up with injuries all over his body and the erring driver sped off.
