OMG this is so SAD! As reported in the LEADERSHIP SUNDAY. A pregnant woman identified as Elo, who was crushed to death alongside her one-year-old son at Alaba Suru bus-stop, along the Lagos-Badagry expressway was reported to have visited and even ate at her friends place two hours after the incident.
An eyewitness, who spoke with LEADERSHIP Sunday, said a Lexus Sport Utility vehicle (SUV) reversing against traffic crushed Elo, and her son. The eyewitness also told reporters that the impact smashed Elo's head and the intestine of the baby gushed out, after a truck conveying a 40-feet container also rammed into the SUV from behind, damaging it.
A family friend of the victims, Odafe, disclosed that two hours after the accident, Elo and her son appeared where her (Elo’s) friend was selling ‘amala’ along Ojo Road, Ajegunle, and after eating the food, left the scene.
He said 10 minutes later, someone came to the ‘amala’ joint to announce the news of the tragedy which the amala seller did not believe until she went to the scene. Elo was said to be a fashion designer at Ojo Road but lived with her husband at Surulere. She was returning home when the accident occurred. Her elder sister was said to have delivered a baby girl yesterday but people concealed the bad news from her.
The case is being investigated by men of the Nigerian police force attached to the Layeni police station.
