“The family hired the tricycle rider on Governors Road to take them to their church around the Isheri Olofin area. The couple was seated behind with their two boys and when they got to the sharp bend immediately after Idowu Egba, the SUV crossed from the other side of the road and hit them. The impact of the collision threw the tricycle and the occupants across the drainage by the roadside,” he said.

One of the commercial bus drivers, who identified himself only as Francis, said the SUV almost had a head-on collision with his bus before it rammed into the tricycle.

The other commercial bus driver, Blessing Amajir, said he was also heading to church with his family before the SUV collided with his vehicle.
