SWITZERLAND, MAY 21 – An unspecified number of people have died in a fatal accident on the Otedola Bridge in the Berger area of Lagos.
Today’s Echo gathers that the accident occurred on Thursday morning when a trailer collider with multiple vehicles on the brigde. It’s still unclear how many people died.
Videos of the accident on social media shows a white bus crumbled under the impact of collision with rescue workers trying to salvage the situation.
The Otedola Bridge has been a scene of several fatal mass accidents in the past. In June 2018, scores of people were burnt alive when a fuel tanker exploded on the bridge.
In October 2018, many also died in multiple accidents on the bridge.
