Dr. Chizoro Edohasim

A Nigerian doctor who killed his nine-year-old daughter in a horror high-speed crash which ‘sounded like a bomb going off’ was today jailed for four years.

Chizoro Edohasim, 47, was travelling at 60mph as he desperately tried to get the young girl and her sister to a maths lesson on time.

A court heard that he was rushing so quickly to get Olivia and her sister Eva, 11, to a tutor his Toyota Auris went through a red light at full throttle and ploughed into a wall. 

Olivia – who was sitting in the back seat with her seatbelt on – suffered fatal back injuries in the impact, which was described by one witness as ‘like a bomb going off’.

A witness also described Dr Edohasim, from Timperley, near Altrincham, Greater Manchester, was driving ‘like a lunatic’ on May 7, 2016. 

He was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

The injuries he suffered in the incident left him in a wheelchair and he was today jailed for four years and was disqualified from driving for five years.

Minshull Street Crown Court heard from witnesses who said that his driving was irresponsible and dangerous after he was seen driving his car at high speed overtaking other vehicles and causing oncoming traffic to take evasive action.

The late Olivia

Edohasim denied the charge and said that his brakes had failed during the incident in May 2016. 

The car was examined by experts and data downloaded revealed that the car was at 100 per cent acceleration and the brakes were off at the time of the collision. 

The trial had heard that he overtook a car on the wrong side of the road, with the other driver forced to slam on his brakes.

The trial had heard that he overtook a car on the wrong side of the road, with the other driver forced to slam on his brakes. 

‘It was not suggested that was deliberate. I find that you intended to press the brake pedal but pressed the accelerator in error.

‘You reacted to your mistake by pressing the pedal harder and keeping your foot pressed down. Your car shot through the junction and into a wall.

‘Your daughter Olivia, nine, was killed and your daughter Eva, 11, sustained serious injuries for which she needed surgery and spent up to one month in hospital.’

The judge added: ‘There is a grave aggravating feature that you also caused serious injury to your older daughter, which means both sentences will be higher to reflect.

The car involved in the accident

‘There are two powerful factors in mitigation. One is the injuries to yourself, the second is the fact you are a man of exemplary good character.

‘Witnesses have spoken about you in glowing terms. I accept that any conviction will have a significant impact on your career. 

‘Finally, and most importantly in mitigation, there is the factor that the deceased was one of your children.

‘I accept that you were a loving father and this will make a significant difference to your sentence.

You will carry with you the heavy burden of what you did for the rest of your life.

‘But the offences you committed were so serious only a substantial prison sentence can be imposed.’

In mitigation, Simon Russell Flint QC, said: ‘This case is more than tragic. ‘It was his fault, the jury decided, and for some inexplicable and senseless reason he didn’t press the brake pedal but instead pressed the accelerator.

‘For any father to have to carry this with them is a huge burden. There is no doubt the Dr Edohasim will continue to suffer long after any sentence from the court has expired.’

The court heard that Dr Edohasim had one previous conviction for a motoring offence, when he was flashed by a speed camera on the motorway, for which he received a fixed penalty. 

Sergeant Brian Orr, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: ‘This was a very tragic case, this family have been ripped apart by the stupidity of their father and his little girl has lost her life due to his dangerous driving.

‘He will have to live with that guilt for the rest of his life, knowing that he killed his own daughter. There really are no winners in this case.

‘Prison is the lesser of the punishments that Edohasim will suffer. This tragic incident shows that we will always bring those who gamble with peoples’ lives by driving dangerously, to justice.’

In what will come across as a really startling development, a dead man has been made to sit at his own funeral.

According to Trinidad Express, the dead man was embalmed into a sitting position, placed in the tray of a hearse and given an open-air last ride past the Office of the Prime Minister on the way to his funeral.

Dressed in a suit and in a chair, murdered Che Lewis was placed in the back of a pick-up van by Dennie’s Funeral Home and driven around Port of Spain on Wednesday.

Witnesses and social media users were stunned.

TTPS Road Safety Co-ordinator Brent Batson told Express via a What’s App message that the funeral home’s manner of transporting the deceased will be investigated.

The dead man was made to sit on a chair at his funeral

Batson said, “The TTPS is disappointed in the reckless behavior engaged in by a funeral home being circulated on social media whereby persons were seen seated in the vehicle tray seemingly as part of a funeral procession. Carrying persons in a dangerous manner is an offence Regulation 38 Rule 17 of the Motor Vehicle Road Traffic Act (MVRTA) with a $1,000 penalty and the TTPS will be continuing investigation into funeral company’s conduct on the road.”

Several videos of the ‘last ride’ were posted on social media, with many commenting that this was “proof that Trinidad is not a real place”, while others said they idea was only novel in Trinidad but was done in other countries.

Lewis, 29, and his father Adlay Lewis, 49, were shot and killed on November 15 at their home at First Trace, Bagatelle Road, Diego Martin.

His funeral was streamed live on social media, but not all the viewers were aware that the man sitting at the entrance to the church was the deceased.

There was also a question as to why he was not wearing a mask.

The funeral home informed that because of the “unique funeral, the church was astonished and refused the entrance of Che”.

Following the funeral service at the St John The Evangelist R.C Church at Church Street, Diego Martin the bodies of father and son were interred the St John The Evangelist Cemetery.

The funeral home also intends introducing a new form of body disposal to Trinidad and Tobago.

It is know as alkaline hydrolysis, a process for the disposal of human and pet remains using lye and heat.
