Ikeji (not Linda) dies on her way to work
A level 17 teacher in Lagos State Tuesday died in an early morning car crash on her way to work.
The teacher identified as Mrs Ikeji was teaching at Lagos State-owned Festac Girls Senior Secondary School until her death.
One of the non-teaching staff in the school told newsmen that the teacher was living in Agege and had to travel to Festac every day to teach.
“She was rushing down to the school that day because her students had NECO Home Economics practical in the morning,” the staff said.
“She died on her way here. A teacher was brought in from another school to help the students.”
It was learnt that Ikeji was transferred to Festac Girls in District V in 2015 from a school in Agege (District I).
Before her death, Ikeji pushed for her transfer back to District I in Agege on several times without any success.
A teacher who knew her said the deceased was always fatigued due to the distance she had to travel every day.
“Moreover, she had a sick husband she catered to and combining that with the long journey to work affected her,” the teacher said.
An official of District V under which Ikeji worked said there are currently many teachers who travel far distances to work every day.
