The driver who crushed two road sweepers to death on the Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway of Lagos State has surrendered himself to the Lagos State Police Command.
Recall that the driver allegedly killed the sweepers discharging their duties around Gbagada expressway axis on Monday.
Eyewitnesses said the driver was evading arrest when he ran into the LAWMA workers.
Although the state Ministry of Transportation confirmed the death of the two road sweepers, it denied that the driver was chased by Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officers when the unfortunate incident happened.
The ministry said investigation has been launched into the incident and those found culpable would be brought to book.
On Tuesday, November 14, 2023, the spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed his arrest.
The suspect who drove the vehicle with number plate EPE 984 DV turned himself in to the police on Monday evening.
The police image-maker said the driver would be charged to court on Tuesday for manslaughter.
“The owner of the Honda Saloon car turned himself in yesterday (Monday) night and he will be taken to court today for manslaughter.
“It was not murder, it was an accident and was not deliberate, so he will be charged with manslaughter.”Follow us on social media:
