Two feared dead as plywood lands on vehicles in Lagos

Two persons were confirmed dead and many injured on Tuesday night when plywood fell off a truck on Ojuelegba bridge in.Lagos.

The incident occurred around 8pm as plywood fell on three commercial buses and a car belonging to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.

A gridlock ensued as a huge crowd of sympathisers gathered to rescue the victims.

Some years ago, a container loaded with cement fell off the grudge and totally crushed a car and its occupants.

There has been public outcry for the state government to ban trucks from plying or parking on the bridge.

Rescue operation was coordinated by the state emergency management agency.
