There was pandemonium at the Amukoko area of Lagos on Easter sunday, after a drunk driver rammed into a street, crushing five people.

Eugine Nweke, a resident of 63, Muri Ojora Street, Amukoko, while driving a Mercedes Benz 190 marked EPE471CD at about 2:30pm, lost control knocking down the victims.

The accident attracted the wrath of residents who almost lynched the driver but for the quick intervention of policemen from Amukoko division.

It was learnt that while a 68-year-old woman identified as Mariam Raji died hours later at the Ajagunle General Hospital, the other four injured persons- Angel Anusiem, 38; Mohammed Sani, Kafayat Lukmon, 30, and another- were responding to treatment.

The suspect who was said to have been gulping a herbal concoction known as Action Bitters found in his car by detectives, was immediately arrested.

Confirming the incident, the state command’s spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police  (SP) said the deceased has been deposited at the mortuary, adding that investigations have commenced.

“The matter was reported by one Azeez Raji of 7, Alafia Street, Amukoko. The car hit five people. One died on Monday morning at the hospital and the corpse was deposited in the mortuary. The suspect is in custody and was arrested under the influence of alcohol,” 
she said.
