According to an eyewitness, Tayo, the driver escaped after being almost lynched by onlookers at the scene of the accident.

“It is a Hummer bus; it probably lost its brake. It rammed into the shops and cleared about five of them. A woman and her daughter were crushed and confirmed dead when rushed to the hospital,” Tayo said.

Another eyewitness said the woman was killed while trying to save her child.

“She was rushing to go and save her daughter, but unfortunately, the bus crushed the two of them. The driver ran away when people descended on him,” the source said.


At the time of filing this report, the Divisional Police Officer at Ikotun, Adagba Johnson, and the Lagos Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Babatunde Farinloye, confirmed the incident.
