The deceased was said to be driving toward Lagos Island when a DAF truck, with registration number JJJ 59 XA driven by one  Osaghai  Justice Eko, crushed his vehicle.

It was gathered that the driver of the truck lost control and hit the median in the middle of the road, before crushing the car driven by the former governor’s son.
“It took several hours before those who came to the rescue of the victim could break into the vehicle. He was trapped behind the wheel with blood gushing out of his head as a result of the impact,” an eyewitness said
The eyewitness added that it was the timely arrival of policemen and officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASMA) that saved the driver, as the crowd almost lynched him.

The image maker in charge of the state police command, Ngozi Braide, confirmed  the incident to the Nigerian Tribune, adding that the police had commenced investigations on the incident.

She added that the victim died on the spot, while his remains had been removed to the Lagos Island General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
