There was serious pandemonium on Ajah Road in Lagos this morning. Area boys and passers-by clashed with policemen after a trailer crushed five students as they were crossing the road. The sad incident happened close to Ikota Primary School and the dead pupils were believed to be making their way to the school when they were killed. The tanker driver abandoned his truck and escaped.
The people are insisting they won’t leave the area until Governor Fashola shows up. They blamed the gruesome accident on the lack of a pedestrian bridge in the area. The two express lanes were blocked by the angry protesters which caused heavy traffic in the area. There was heavy police presence in the area.
