A truck on Thursday has crushed and killed a woman at First Gate bus stop, along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
The truck swerved off the road and climbed the curb, where the woman, a beggar, was sitting.
A witness to the incident, Martin Zenab, a trader who spoke with Newsmen said that some transport workers wanted to collect money from the truck driver, which made him swerve off the road.
He 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.”
Zenab added that the truck has been evacuated into the compound of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency while the body of the woman has been moved as well.
