Police Arrest Driver Of Trailer Who Killed Students In Ojodu As Angry Mob Burn Trailer


The reckless driver of the trailer that killed about seven students of Babs Fafunwa Millennium School, along Ogunusi Road, in Ojodu, Lagos on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 has been arrested by the Police.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the arrest of the driver and detention.

“The driver has been arrested. Investigation into the accident is ongoing,” he told reporters.

The crushed students were on their way home after school activities and had wanted to cross the road when the truck ran over them.

A mob descended on the driver and reportedly chased him to the Ogba area before the police apprehended him.

The mob, thereafter, set the trailer on fire. Not satisfied, they started baying for the driver’s blood. Leading to chaos in the area.

The Ojodu Police Station, sensing danger, called for a reinforcement.

Thus, the axis for hours became a no-go area.
