A deadly accident occurred at the Lekki Phase 1 bus stop leading to the loss of three lives with several others injured.
Witnesses said the accident was caused by a Pathfinder SUV that failed brake and ran over parked buses before ending in the ditch by the side of the road. This was the exact same ditch where a bus ended in an accident that cost one life just last month at the same Lekki Phase 1 bus stop.
The jeep had been on the fast lane when the driver lost control of his car and rammed into a parked bus which was loading. The driver of the jeep survived the accident.
A woman popularly known for standing at that bus stop and calling passengers was badly injured in the accident. The injured woman identified as a member of the Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, usually seen wearing the green and white NURTW uniform while calling “Ajah Ajah” to load buses going to Ajah Her leg was reportedly crushed in the accident
