A car allegedly driven by armed robbers fell of the Iddo side of the Eko Bridge on Suday killing three of its occupants and a passer-by. The accident was said to have been to the heavy rain around 2:00pm as the car was reported to have skidded off the bridge.

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) General Manager, Adesina Tiamiyu, said the occupants were suspected to be robbers as weapons were found in the vehicle. He disclosed that a locally-made double-barrelled pistol, live cartridges, a laptop, mobile phones and a dollar note were in the wreckage of the vehicle. He said the vehicle was towed to Denton Police Station, Ebute Meta and the matter handed over to the police for proper investigation.
