An auto crash has claimed the lives of four persons in Lagos.

The crash involved one Alhaji Bello, his daughter in-law and her parents. One of Bello’s tenants was also a victim. The crash which occurred at Agbowa-Ikosi area of Lagos State around 12noon claimed all four lives on the spot.

Eyewitnesses say the family was travelling in two cars: Alhaji Bello and the victims in one; the widow and their five-month old grandson in the other. They left their Bayeku, Ikorodu residence for the graduation of their daughter at Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, and decided to bye-pass Sagamu Road for Agbowa due to the bad condition of the road.

Kehinde Olufade who witnessed the accident said the family had had a smooth journey until they got to a crater at Ikosi where motorists had to maintain a slow speed. Due to the dilapidated nature of the road, a trailer, according to the eye witness, was facing the car driven by Alhaji Bello which he tried to avoid not knowing that a tipper behind him was also trying to overtake him. The car was said to have landed in a ditch. “As soon as the car entered the ditch, the tipper also lost control and fell into the ditch, killing the victims instantly,” the eyewitness said.

Sources close to the family said Alhaji Bello was said to be planning a trip abroad with his wife.
