Three people lost their lives on Saturday, when a trailer coming from the Republic of Benin, and heading towards Mile 2, had a brake failure and crushed a saloon car coming from the opposite direction.

The three unlucky occupants of the car were killed instantly. Saturday’s incident was not the first on the road. Trailers loaded with contraband from the neighbouring country had, on several occasions, been involved in fatal accidents in the area.

An angry mob immediately set the trailer on fire, while the bodies of the occupants were evacuated and transferred to the Lagos State General Hospital, Badagry mortuary.
