Two women die as another container falls in Lagos


Again, a container which fell from a truck has killed two women inside a commercial bus at Odo Olowu area, Ijesha bus-stop in Lagos.

This incident comes barely a month after two workers of the Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria FAAN, were crushed to death in a similar circumstance in Ojota, Lagos state.

The Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, who confirmed the tragic incident which occurred on Friday, said the agency received a distress call at about 9pm that an empty 40-feet container has killed two persons in an accident.

It was learnt that the truck loaded with an empty 40-feet container, suffered brake failure, rammed into the stationary commercial bus, and subsequently fell down.

The two adult females died on the spot and their remains were immediately deposited in the morgue.
