Woman Crushed Pedestrians to Death In Lagos

A female motorist in a Land Cruiser Sport Utility Vehicle crushed some pedestrians to death, on Ilaje Road, in the Bariga area of Lagos State. Among the dead were a pregnant woman, two siblings, an old woman and a man returning from his place of work.

Several others were also said to have sustained varying degrees of injuries, including fractures and broken limbs in the Saturday incident which happened around 9pm.

According to PUNCH Metro: the driver of the yet-to-be-identified woman had left the vehicle for her near Majok Filling Station on Ilaje Road and had left for his house.

The woman, said to be staying on Adebisi Street, had barely taken the wheels to drive the SUV home when the incident occurred. The vehicle reportedly surged forward, crushing pedestrians and killing four of them on the spot.

A set of nine injured people were reportedly taken to the Gbagada General Hospital, among whom two died; while another set of seven casualties were later recovered.

It was learnt that two more corpses were found in the gutter on Sunday morning. Angry youths were said to have gone to the scene and dragged the woman out of the SUV and beaten her up.

She was about to be lynched when some policemen from the Bariga Police Division intervened. PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspect was to celebrate her birthday on Sunday and was going home to make preparations for the event before the incident.

A police source said the female driver, who was rescued with injuries, was recuperating in a private hospital in the area.

He said, “The woman is wealthy, and she was to celebrate her birthday on Sunday. The mob stripped her to the underwear and beat her up. She is recuperating in a hospital; her husband has showed up at the police station.

“There was no pregnant woman in the incident. The victim had Fibroid, and looked as if she was pregnant. The police will invite the driver after her treatment.”
