Our correspondent learned that the vehicle that crushed the three siblings, who were on a visit to their mother, and the other victim, was driving against traffic on Lekki-Epe Expressway, when the accident occurred.
An eyewitness narrated that the vehicle while plying the road experienced brake failure and crushed the victims who were standing at the bus stop to death.
He added that the driver of the vehicle capitalised on the lockdown imposed by President Muhammadu Buhari to flatten the curve of coronavirus pandemic in the country, to contravene the traffic law.
Another eyewitness, who identified himself as Original Tombo, while narrating his experience at the scene on his official social media handle, urged the State Government to intensify enforcement of lockdown in the state.
“I visited the scene of an accident at Sangotedo this morning that claimed the lives of three siblings who returned to assist their mother who sells near by after the morning walk out.
