UPDATE: Woman dies as car plunges into Lagos lagoon

Lagos lagoon accident

Tragedy struck Saturday night when a silver-coloured Kia Rio car plunged into the Lagoon at Mekwen Bridge, Bonny camp, Marina, at about 7.47 p.m., killing a woman.

The incident involved two occupants who were identified as Felix Aniele and Chinagorom Adibe.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that when the incident occurred, Mr. Aniele, who drove the car, swam out to the river bank.

The other occupant, a female identified as Chinagorom Fustine, however, got  trapped in the vehicle and drowned with the car in the Lagoon.

With the combined efforts of officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA,  as well as other agencies like the LASAMBUS, Nigerian Police Force, and the National Emergency Management Authority, NEMA,  the car was recovered from the Lagoon and the corpse of Ms. Chinagorom was also recovered from the car.

LASEMA’s spokesperson, Kehinde Adebayo, said the recovered car has since been towed to Bar Beach Police Station, while the corpse was deposited at the Mainland Hospital Mortuary, Lagos.

The General Manager LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu, said that a full scale investigation surrounding the incident would be conducted by appropriate authorities.

He, however, advised motorists to observe utmost safety while plying the road.

      BUT a crooked mumuwole like you will fail to apply your warped axiom “ “ to the case of Buhari who should have attemped to save his life at Nigerian hospitals or die trying. Just like my River Asaba tested friend swam out of the river leaving his girlfriend to die, Buhari has abandoned Nigerians to die in poorly equipped Nigerian hospitals to seek treatment abroad. So why criticize Mr Aniele but praise Buhari and encourage prayers and fasting for his recovery. Shouldn’t you be praying for the quick recovery of Mr Aniele? At least he must have drunk some shit and piss water from the Lagoon. Yeye Fowl!
