In a heart-wrenching incident, a five-year-old girl identified only as Bosede met a tragic end as she was fatally crushed by a truck while crossing the bustling Iganmu-Apapa Expressway with her mother. The devastating accident, confirmed by the Lagos State Police Command's Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, has sent shockwaves through the community.

According to Hundeyin, the distressing incident unfolded on Saturday around 11:30 a.m., prompting a swift response from authorities. The tragic scene played out beneath the Iganmu under bridge, inward Apapa, involving a truck whose driver remains unidentified.

Details of the accident paint a harrowing picture, with the young girl and her mother attempting to navigate the busy expressway when tragedy struck. The truck collided with Bosede, crushing her head and claiming her life instantly, leaving her family shattered by the abrupt loss.

In the aftermath of the horrific event, police traffic officers from the Iponri police Division swiftly mobilized to the scene, where they retrieved the young victim's lifeless body. Hundeyin noted that arrangements were made for the girl's burial by her grieving family, as the community mourns the devastating loss.
