A tipper on Monday collided with a tricycle and killed five of its occupants.
The accident happened along Tombia-Amassoma Road in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, near the first bridge before Dust Bin Bus Stop, around 7:30pm.
The bodies of the victims have been deposited in the mortuary of a hospital in Yenagoa.
Angered by the incident, the tricycle operators under the auspices of Tombia along Keke Unit, on Tuesday morning, protested the killing of their member by the tipper driver. They blocked a section of the Tombia-Amassoma Road and stopped other operators from plying the road during the action.
