Driver crushes two women to death while evading LASTMA raid

An unidentified driver has crushed two female officials of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) to death while attempting to escape a raid by officers of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA).

According to an eyewitness, the incident happened on Monday around the Charlie Boy bus stop via Oshodi-Gbagada expressway in Lagos State and the two unidentified women died on the spot.

The lifeless bodies of the cleaners were seen laid in a drainage channel as onlookers mourned.

The eyewitness said, “It was a ghastly accident; two LAWMA women were just knocked down by a Sienna vehicle while they were carrying out their duty.

“We don’t know what was wrong with the driver; he just drove straight here and hit the two women. It is such a pity.

“The driver has been arrested and handed over to the police.”

Meanwhile, hundreds of cars and commuters have been stuck in traffic for hours on the Oshodi-Gbagada motorway.

The bottleneck was further exacerbated when people stopped both routes of the motorway, causing a halt in traffic movement.

It was gathered that the influx of vehicles using the motorway lanes to get to their destinations created a traffic jam that detained several motorists.

However, according to reports, law enforcement authorities have arrived to prevent a disaster.
