A hit-and run driver has sadly ended the lives of a newly married couple identified as Kingsley and Ajoke Akpor in Warri, Delta State.
Reports have it that the sad incident occurred on Sunday night, May 2, along NPA Expressway. The couple were rammed into by the speeding driver while they were crossing the highway after returning from a birthday party held at PTI Conference Centre.
Regrettably, the unknown driver escaped the scene after ramming into them. After a little research on the couple, it was gathered that Kingsley was a photographer who had a studio in Agbarho, Ughelli North LGA of the state. He got married to his wife, Ajoke on December 21, 2020.
