Salami reportedly drank an insecticide and died. Speaking on the incident, the spokesperson of TRACE, Babatunde Akinbiyi, denied reports the man was a truck owner.

He also denied claims the deceased was fined.

“The man was neither a truck driver nor a truck owner. We only saw him there, he sat on the floor and the people asked him to stand up and as he stood up he brought out something from his pocket and drank it.

We later discovered that it was snipper that he drank. He was rushed to the General Hospital, where he gave up the ghost. The case has been reported to the police.” Akinbiyi said
