An unidentified man and his daughter on Tuesday plunged into the Lagoon in Ajah with his Toyota Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).
We gathered that the man whose identity could not be determined was travelling along the Lekki-Epe Express way in company of his wife and daughter but fell off Ikota Bridge in Ajah and plunged into the nearby lagoon.
General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, said the man’s wife was thrown out of the vehicle when it somersaulted before plunging into the lagoon.
He explained that the accident occurred at about 1.00 a.m., and that the dead bodies had been deposited at a mortuary while the woman was taken to a hospital.
“We have recovered the dead bodies and have transferred them to the appropriate quarters for the necessary actions. The woman, rescued at the scene by emergency officials, has been taken to a hospital for treatment. Search for the vehicle, an ash Toyota jeep, is still ongoing. We are doing everything to get it out of the lagoon,’’ he said.
