The case was said to have been reported at the Kirikiri Police Station by one Ibrahim, the truck owner.

The police spokesperson in the state, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the incident, said, “On November 25, 2020, around 10.15 am, one Ibrahim reported at the Kirikiri Police Station that his driver while under the influence of alcohol slipped and fell into Kirikiri river from the bridge.
