Lady, suspected bag snatcher killed by moving vehicles in Lagos
A lady identified as Bukola Adelowo was on Friday crushed to death by a fast moving vehicle in Lagos, in an attempt to recover her bag snatched by a suspected thief. Bukola, whose wedding has been scheduled to hold soon died on the spot.
Kblog gathered that the ugly incident happened at about 7a.m., at the Adeniji Adele-Oworosoki Expressway on the Lagos Island.
The suspect allegedly snatched the lady’s bag, ran across the six-lane expressway and was also killed by another fast moving vehicle while trying to escape from his victim.
“The lady ran after him to recover her bag without being mindful of the vehicles on the road. The suspect and the lady were killed by two different vehicles.
“The body parts of the lady were scattered on the road, and the accident caused a heavy traffic,’’ a source said.
A lady, identified as Olufunke, who claimed to be the deceased younger sister , said that the victim was concluding arrangements for her wedding in July.
Olufunke, who could not control herself, said someone who knew her and her sister called her on phone to inform her of the incident and she rushed to the scene.
“The dead lady is my sister. Her name is Bukola Adelowo. She was to marry in July. Her fiancée just left Nigeria for abroad to prepare for the wedding. It is a very sad moment,’’ Olufunke said.
