    A tipper loaded with chippings has reportedly fallen off one of the unity bridges in Ebonyi State.
    The bridge popularly known as Ogbogbo Ekebeligwe Ishieke bridge is situated across Ogbogbo River along Nwiboko Obodo road in Ebonyi LGA of Ebonyi State.
    Our sources, Monsignor Nwedukwu and Emmanuel Nwebonyi told our correspondent that the tipper was fully loaded with chippings heading for the Holy Family Parish, Ekebeligwe Ishieke in Mbeke Development Centre in the area but the depiladated nature of the wooden bridge resulted into the ugly incident.
    The duo in a chat stated that, no lost of life recorded except one Mr Reuben Nwaedoga – the husband of the Chairlady August meeting of the parish who was inside the tipper was injured badly.
    The sources stated that the chippings carried by the tipper belong to the Catholic Women Organization (CWO) of the parish.
    “A tipper loaded with chippings belonging to the Holy Family Parish Ekebeligwe Ishieke Catholic Women Organization (CWO) fell off from the dreadful bridge of our village.
    “We give God thanks, for what happened at bridge Ogbogbo Ekebeligwe yesterday was nothing to write home about, and the shockest part of it, is that Rebeun Nwedoga was inside the tipper but all glory be to God that he didn’t die but injured,” Nwedukwu stated.
    “No life was lost only Reuben Nwaedoga, the husband to Chairlady of August meeting that was inside the the tipper  injured. It is by the grace of God that the man survived. Parise be to God,” Nwebonyi added.
    Meanwhile, other residents in the area have called for immediate intervention by the state government to reconstruct the bridge serving as only route connecting Ebonyi and Mbeke Development Centres in the area, while expressing dissatisfaction over its bad nature.
    It could be recalled that the bridge was bye-passed by Governor David Nweze Umahi’s led administration after constructing concrete pavement based road across it with no hope at sight now as contractors had all packed out from the area.
