A Lagos State Waste Management Agency, LAWMA, truck Thursday hit a woman and her twin children in the Igando Area of the state.
Eyewitnesses said the driver of the truck with number plate FKJ 267 XW, was driving against traffic, to dispose refuse at a dump site when the tragedy occurred. The unidentified woman was about to cross the road, unaware that the truck was approaching.
Another eyewitness, Okeho Jumbo, said: “The truck ran over the woman’s legs, while one of her twins was brought out from under the truck. “They were all rushed to the Igando General Hospital, where doctors are battling to save their lives.”
Angry residents, who described incident as one too many, shattered the windscreen of the truck. They pointed out that the trucks were always driving against traffic. However, the driver reportedly fled before the mob arrived.
