On Thursday, a woman was killed when a truck rammed into her at the First Gate bus stop on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
The woman, a beggar, was sitting by the roadside when the vehicle drove off the road and mounted it.
Martins Zenab, a local businessman, claims that the truck driver was forced to go off the road by several transport workers who were trying to collect money from him.
Zenab said, “The incident happened about 10 minutes to 12. The ‘agberos’ collecting trailer money were harassing the driver for money when he swerved and went to crush the woman, a beggar who used to sit on the curb.”
He continued by saying that the woman’s body had also been moved and that the truck had been evacuated onto the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency’s grounds.
