The suspect allegedly snatched the lady’s bag and ran across the six-lane expressway.
“The lady ran after him to recover her bag without being mindful of the vehicles on the road. The suspect and the lady were killed by two different vehicles.
“The body parts of the lady were scattered on the road, and the accident caused a heavy traffic,” a source said.
A lady, who simply identified herself as Olufunke and who claimed to be a younger sister of the deceased, said that the victim was concluding arrangements for her wedding in July before her tragic death.
Olufunke, who was sobbing uncontrollably, said that she was informed of her elder sister’s death on phone by someone who knew both of them and she immediately rushed to the scene of the incident.
“The dead lady is my sister. Her name is Bukola Adelowo. She was to marry in July. Her fiancée just left Nigeria for abroad to prepare for the wedding. It is a very sad moment,” Olufunke said.
Contacted, the Lagos police spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, said she was yet to be informed of the accident.
