ENDSARS Protest: Car hit two on Airport Road

By Amidu Arije

A car had hit two persons on Muritala Muhammed International Airport Road, Oshodi Lagos.

The car which was taking one way from the international airport due to the blockage of the road by the #ENDSARS protesters on Saturday crushed two ladies at the Airport Junction bus stop, Mafoluku Oshodi. 

It was a near-fatal accident as the car hit unsuspecting road users on the ever-busy airport road from behind.

Two persons sustained degrees of injury immediately accident occurred. One of them, Mrs Oyinyechi, a single mother had her left leg cut off with a serious head injury as the car hit her and she hit her head on the car’s front glass.

The other lady, identified as Yetunde sustained an injury on the head and bruises on her legs.
They were immediately rushed to a nearby private hospital for treatment.

The Bliss News learnt that the single mother who sells groceries was on her way to the shop while Yetunde was going to visit her father before the unfortunate incident occurred.

According to the victims and eyewitnesses who spoke to our correspondent, the accident would have been averted if the pedestrian bridge on the airport road where the accident happened had been completed.

They also blamed the accident to the continued protests leading to blockage of roads by the #ENDSARS protesters who block all routes leading to the Muritala Muhammed International Airport.

An eyewitness, Mr Wasiu said: “If not for this #ENDSARS protest people that block the roads, which lead to cars passing one way, this accident would have not happened and also the uncompleted bridge here is another problem,”
