They had just gotten married and were looking forward to a good life together, for better and for worse.

But the worst came too soon for Mr Tunde the cocoa trader and his new bride on Sunday when they were on their way to a thanksgiving service at Isolo in Ibodi Ijesa, Osun state.

The couple were on their private motorcycle when a Toyota Camry driven by one Olarenwaju aka Larry Boy lost control and crushed them.

The incident which happened in front of Osun State College of Education saw a quick gathering of an angry mob who attacked Larry and initiated jungle justice.

With the speed of light, a jerrycan of petrol had been provided with the crowd looking for a used tyre, eyewitnesses told Bounce News.

But luckily for Larry, his brother Kayode who was also driving his own newly acquired car behind, quickly called the police to intervein and that was how he escaped death.

While he got lucky, both Mr Tunde and his wife died on the spot.

Asked what really went wrong, the driver of the car, Larry explained that his brakes failed, and he lost control of the car and he rammed into the couple from behind.

But the crowd would not accept his claims that it was a mistake. They accused him of being an internet fraudster – Yahoo Boy whose lifestyle is reckless.

Policemen from Ayeso police station have since arrested Larry Boy and his brother while the couple's bodies were taken to the mortuary at Wesley Guild Hospital in Ilesa town.

Could this couple have been saved if they wore helmets?
