Woman killed in her bedroom as truck rams into building in Abeokuta
There was tragedy along the Obada area of Abeokuta, Ogun State, as a truck rammed into a residential building killing one.
The road crash reportedly happened around 8:25am on Monday along the Lagos-Abeokuta highway, inbound the rock city.
The Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps Spokesperson, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said two trucks were competing, driving recklessly and lost control.
One of the trucks, in the process, rammed into a shop and a building, killing the woman.
“According to eyewitnesses, two trucks were competing for lane, as if on a track race when suddenly, in attempt to avoid an object, the one on the outer lane swerved towards the inner truck and which also in an attempt to avoid the outer one, rammed into the shop and house by the road, killing a woman, who had just had her bath, and trying to apply make-up.
“The driver of the truck ran away to avoid a mob who were desperate to kill him and set the truck ablaze, but for the quick intervention of TRACE Corps operatives and police operatives from Obada-Oko Divisional Police Station,” he said.
